New Cancer Center at Cooper Hospital in Camden, NJ Set To Open

By Mike DeNardo

CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — A ribbon-cutting was held this morning for a new cancer center opening in Camden.

Cooper University Hospital board chair George Norcross (second from left in photo) said today that when a partnership with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was proposed, he was unaware of the center’s national reputation.

“I must admit, I said, ‘Who the hell is MD Anderson?,’ like many people perhaps in this region.  But I can assure you, in the next several weeks everyone in this region is going to know who the number one cancer center is.”

The new, $100-million MD Anderson Cooper Cancer Center features state-of-the-art treatment facilities.  Cooper doctors will share research with MD Anderson (see previous story).

The center opens for patients next Monday.
