The Cooper Health System Board of Trustees has named Adrienne Kirby president and chief executive officer of Cooper University Health Care.
Kirby joined Cooper in January 2012 as senior executive vice president and chief operating officer. In her new role, she will manage all hospital and ambulatory operations, and oversee the physician group and the institute structure at Cooper. Kirby has more than 30 years of health care management experience, much of it at hospitals in the Delaware Valley.
John P. Sheridan, Jr. remains president and CEO of the Cooper Health System, and Kirby will continue to report to him.
"Dr. Kirby is providing Cooper with a strategic direction and a clear focus on service excellence," noted George E. Norcross, III, chairman of the Board of Trustees at Cooper. "We are confident that her strong, visionary leadership will enable our organization to continue its growth, and help improve access and quality of care for patients throughout South Jersey."
