Cooper University Health Care Chairman George E. Norcross, III announced today that the health system will increase the minimum wage it pays employees to $15 an hour, the first health system in New Jersey to make such a commitment to its full-time, part-time, and per-diem employees.
Cooper is one of approximately 40 sites in the United States and the only hospital in the Philadelphia region participating in a clinical trial for Boston Scientific’s Watchman FLXTM device.
Expanding to meet growing patient demand, MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper recently announced the opening of a new outpatient diagnostic mammography center on its Camden campus.
