Close Up: Adrienne KirbyPresident and CEO of Cooper University Health Care


Position: President and CEO of Cooper University Health Care

Key role: I am responsible for leading the organization, including all hospital and outpatient operations and the nearly 500-member physician group. I also oversee the advancement of strategic care partnerships and implementing new models of care delivery to improve quality and service, and decrease costs.

Goals: I believe we must always strive to be better and deliver exemplary quality and service to our patients and their families. I am fortunate to be able to leverage Cooper's history and strengths to help build a world-class organization well positioned for the future challenges we face.

Previous jobs: I have more than 30 years' health care management experience, much of it at hospitals in the Delaware Valley. Before joining Cooper, I was president of Medstar Franklin Square Medical Center, in Baltimore, a 380-bed community teaching hospital.

Key strengths: I have a clear vision for what the successful future should look like for a health care organization. My strength is in harnessing the energy and talent of the team to focus together on achieving that vision. I would say that I am a conductor. Like a conductor, I can't play all the instruments, but I know what the music should sound like.

Career high: Joining Cooper at such an exciting time of expansion and growth. I feel as if I have come full circle: I was born at Cooper, my family was part of the Camden community for many years, and now I am back and bringing my vision for excellence.

Next: Lead Cooper into the next generation of health care delivery in our country. Leverage our academic and clinical strength to broaden the population that we serve.

Challenges: Health care is complex, competitive and disjointed. We struggle with shifting payment structures, competing priorities and finding a balance between managing the best health care we can deliver in an extremely high-cost environment.

After hours: I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and remodeling our beach house at the Jersey Shore. I also enjoy fitness and keeping active.
