Rowan, Cooper University Hospital to run new medical school in Camden, NJ
Philadelphia Inquirer, June 29, 2009
A newly established four-year medical school in downtown Camden, NJ, jointly run by Rowan University and Cooper University Hospital, will expand both the South Jersey medical community and Camden's educational hub, officials said. The deal allows Cooper, which recently opened a $220 million patient pavilion, to further expand its operations. Officials there have stated their desire to take on the major Philadelphia teaching hospitals, keeping South Jersey doctors and patients from having to cross the Delaware River.
