Fredric L. Ginsberg, MD, FACC, FACCP, a clinical cardiologist and co-medical director of the Cooper Heart Institute, has been named medical director of cardiac services at Premier Cadbury of Cherry Hill. Premier Cadbury is a continuing care retirement community that offers independent living, assisted living, memory care, and sub-acute rehabilitation, as well as long-term care.
In his new role, Dr. Ginsberg will oversee Cadbury’s cardiac program for individuals undergoing treatment and rehabilitation for heart failure and other cardiac conditions. Dr. Ginsberg will work collaboratively with Premier Cadbury’s team of nurse practitioners; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; and social services staff to provide cardiac patients with a comprehensive plan of care. The goals of the program are to help patients better manage their disease, reduce hospital readmissions and emergency room visits, and shorten length of stays in the hospital setting.
At Cooper, Dr. Ginsberg provides clinical services and shares administrative oversight for the Cooper Heart Institute, the most comprehensive heart care center in southern New Jersey. In January, Cooper and Inspira Health Network formed a joint venture to integrate cardiac services. This affiliation, called Cardiac Partners, provides patients in the South Jersey region with access to more coordinated cardiac services across the continuum of care.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Cooper to offer high-quality cardiac care to our residents, and look forward to expanding our offerings in the future,” said Meredith Becker, MHSA, LNHA, executive director of Premier Cadbury of Cherry Hill.
