Cooper University Health Care is expanding to become the largest health system in South Jersey.
Officials from the health-care company have entered into an agreement to acquire Lourdes Health System and Saint Francis Medical Center in order to expand their services throughout southern New Jersey.
Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington, and St. Francis Medical Center in Trenton are included in the acquisition.
Once combined, the new Cooper University Health Care System will serve more than 2.1 million people in South Jersey.
The transaction is still subject to state and federal regulatory approval.
