Here at Cooper, we are fortunate to have five female trauma surgeons on staff, comprising 50 percent of our trauma surgery staff of physicians. This complement of female trauma surgeons is almost unheard of in trauma centers around the country where many do not even have one female trauma surgeon on staff.
Cooper, one of only three state-designated Level 1 Trauma Centers in NJ, is the only hospital in the Delaware Valley/Philadelphia region that provides trauma care for both adults and children. Each year, Cooper treats more than 4,000 patients, making it one of the busiest trauma centers in the state. Nearly 15 percent of those treated are children who are severely injured in motor vehicle crashes, falls, accidents, and acts of violence. Cooper is the only hospital in South Jersey and the second among New Jersey’s Level 1 trauma centers to achieve verification as a Pediatric Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons.
