The report, which includes collaborative data from 2010 to 2014, details how the Camden Higher Education and Healthcare Task Force members, also referred to as Eds and Meds, have collectively had a significant and positive financial impact on Camden’s economy.
The efforts of the task force members have a total economic impact in 2014 exceeding $2 billion and generating more than 2,300 new jobs at its anchor institutions—CAMcare, Camden County College, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Cooper University Health Care, Lourdes Health System, Rowan University/Rutgers Camden Board of Governors, Rutgers-Camden and Virtua—according to an economic impact report released earlier today at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.
