Jeffrey Brenner, MD
Executive Director, Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers
Dr. Jeffrey Brenner is a family physician that has worked in Camden, NJ for the past twelve years. Dr. Brenner owned and operated a solo practice, urban family medicine office that provided full-spectrum family health services to a largely Hispanic, Medicaid population, including delivery of babies, caring for children and adults, and doing home visits. His life’s goal is to ensure that all families who live in urban, underserved communities receive high quality, culturally competent, personalized family health care.
Dr. Brenner is the director of the Institute of Urban Health at Cooper Hospital where he has spearheaded innovative solutions for improving the health of urban, underserved communities. Recognizing the need for a new way for hospitals, providers, and community residents to collaborate he founded and has served as the executive director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers since 2003.
The Camden Coalition is a non-profit organization committed to improving the quality, capacity, and accessibility of the healthcare delivery system in Camden. Dr. Brenner’s work is dependent on building complex collaborations among three highly competitive hospitals, two local FQHC’s, social service providers, and small private medical offices in Camden. Through the Camden Coalition, local stakeholders are working to build an integrated, health delivery model to provide better care for Camden City residents.
Dr. Brenner attended Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed a Family Medicine residency at the Swedish health Center in Seattle, Washington. His work has been profiled by the writer and surgeon Dr. Atul Gwande in an article in The New Yorker entitled, “The Hot Spotters” and on an episode of PBS Frontline in July 2011.
