  • Two New Jersey-based health systems – Cape Regional Health System and Cooper University Health – signed a letter of intent to merge into a system of more than 10,000 employees and over $2.2 billion in annual revenues. Cooper University Health is the major academic health system of southern New Jersey, with more than 8,500 employees and 1.9 million patient visits annually.
