You could argue the CEO of Cooper Health System should have been on this list for some time. But after the hospital announced the creation of the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper earlier this year, the only debate left was where he would be on the list. The center will bring the top-rated cancer institute to the state. “The rise of Cooper is a big deal for South Jersey and all of New Jersey,” one insider said.
