Cooper’s UHI is dedicated to redesigning and improving care delivery to underserved populations, specifically Camden based Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries. The Institute was founded with seed funding in 2013 from The Nicholson Foundation and Cooper to redesign outpatient primary care and specialty care for those with the most complicated social needs, and difficulty accessing medical care.
Dr. Kaufman is a founding team member of UHI and has an extensive collaborative history with the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers and other Camden providers through diabetes-related projects and initiatives. He also led the establishment of the group medical visits and has championed UHI’s other hallmark models of care including LPN protocols and care management.
The UHI’s medical practices are located in Camden, NJ, at the Cooper Advanced Care Center (CACC) on the Cooper Health Sciences Campus and at Cooper Family Medicine at the Kroc Center. Both outpatient multispecialty practices offer primary care and 23 specialties encompassing addiction medicine, medical specialties, orthopaedics, and surgery, among others.
Dr. Kaufman received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the University Hospitals of Cleveland at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH. He completed a fellowship in endocrinology and metabolism at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA.
