Englewood Health appoints Liza Kind Cooper as vice president, strategy

Liza Kind Cooper has joined Englewood Health as vice president for strategy, according to an announcement last week. In this role, Cooper is responsible for advising, overseeing and collaborating on strategic projects for the CEO and president. She also collaborates with the senior leadership team to drive business growth and operational excellence and ensure the successful implementation and execution of key strategic initiatives.

Cooper previously served as a strategy consultant at Bain & Co. in New York City, where she focused on health care and life sciences, advising both corporate and private equity clients.

Prior to joining Bain & Co., Cooper was the chief of staff at Englewood Health. As a member of the executive leadership team, she both served the CEO on high-priority matters and helped to shape strategic initiatives and generate operational improvements across the organization.

Among the initiatives she led were partnering with local organizations to collectively better serve the community, forming an environmental sustainability program and developing a behavioral health strategic plan that focused on expanding outpatient mental health services to the community in northern New Jersey.

“Liza represents the next generation of health care leaders, and we are delighted to welcome her back,” Warren Geller, CEO and president of Englewood Health, said. “Her health care business acumen, leadership skills on major projects and commitment to the patient at the end of every decision all make her uniquely talented and effective in a strategic planning role.”
