Cooper University Health Care together with Inspira Health on Monday announced the formation of Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience, another partnership between the two health systems.
This partnership will improve local access to a range of advanced neuroscience care, including surgical and nonsurgical services related to the brain, spinal cord and central nervous system.
“Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience expands not only the cooperation of two respected health systems, but the access patients across the region will have to some of the best specialists in the world and innovative treatments,” George Norcross III, chairman of the board of trustees of the Cooper Health System, Cooper University Hospital and MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, said.
This new arrangement builds on the proven success of Cooper and Inspira Cardiac Care, preparing to go into its sixth year of partnership.
“We have proven with Cooper and Inspira Cardiac Care that our teams can successfully collaborate to provide the highest level of cardiac care, and we are confident the same will be true for patients needing the most advanced neurological care,” Amy Mansue, CEO and president of Inspira Health, said. “By integrating care between our two health systems, we are enhancing access to highly coordinated comprehensive patient care that includes prevention, diagnosis, treatment and healing for the full spectrum of brain, spine and nerve diseases, conditions and disorders.”
Patients across southern New Jersey and Greater Philadelphia will benefit as the two trusted names and their specialists join forces to provide the most advanced neuroscience care in the region. Subspecialties include neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, neuropathology, neurophysiology and neuropsychology.
Whether it’s care for stroke, brain injury, headaches, epilepsy, spine conditions, brain tumors, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease or other neurological conditions, the experts at Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience will provide cutting-edge treatments, including robotic and minimally invasive procedures.
“This historic partnership will result in the most comprehensive neuroscience program in the region,” Kevin O’Dowd, co-CEO of Cooper University Health Care, said. “We are proud to expand upon the multiple partnerships with Inspira and provide greater access to world-renowned experts in neuroscience.”
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Cooper into neuroscience,” Elizabeth Ryan, board chair of Inspira Health, said. “Our work with Cooper fully supports our mission for improving access and elevating the patient experience. This partnership will benefit communities throughout South Jersey and beyond.”
“By combining the resources and expertise at Cooper and Inspira, we are extending this successful model to provide exceptional neurological care to more communities,” Dr. Anthony Mazzarelli, co-CEO of Cooper University Health Care, said. “We are confident this venture will save lives and benefit many patients in need of complex neurological care.”
“Neuroscience is a rapidly evolving field of medicine and, with the teams at Cooper and Inspira coming together today, with a commitment to providing patients with the latest research and innovation, this region will be a destination for the best evidence-based care,” Dr. Tudor Jovin, medical director, Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience, and chairman and chief of neurology at Cooper University Health Care, said.
