The Cooper Foundation raised more than $1 million at the first ever Red Hot Gala. The Gala, held at the Hyatt at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia on Saturday night, honored Mr. Norcross and his wife, Sandy, for their long-time commitment to Cooper and the City of Camden. More than 800 guests attended the event, including medical, business and community leaders from across the Delaware Valley. “This was a million dollar night for Cooper University Hospital and the people of the Delaware Valley,” said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation. “Thanks to our generous and committed donors, Cooper takes another step forward in achieving its mission of delivering world-class patient care in a state-of-the-art setting that promotes education, research and community.” Proceeds from the Gala will support the expansion of the hospital’s Simulation Laboratory, which provides high-tech training for thousands of medical professionals each year. The Gala was co-chaired by Amanda Burden, M.D. and her husband Guy Aiman and Michael Goldberg, M.D. and his wife, Melody. Dr.Burden is the Director of the Simulation Laboratory at Cooper and an attending physician in the Department of Anesthesiology.
Simulation-based medical education at Cooper uses interactive technologies in realistic healthcare settings to help participants develop and refine specific diagnostic, cognitive and surgical techniques in a safe setting – before caring for real patients. The planned $10 million expansion of Cooper’s Simulation Laboratory will create an 8,000 square-foot state-of-the-art-center with six fully equipped labs, four control rooms and four classrooms.
