MISSION & HISTORY
SNJPC is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) coalition of healthcare professionals and consumers licensed by the NJ Department of Health as the Maternal and Child Health Consortium serving the seven counties of South Jersey. Founded in 1982, the Cooperative strives to maximize resources, address gaps in care and identify emerging regional needs.
Our mission is to improve perinatal and pediatric health for those living in South Jersey including Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. Guided by a regional perspective, we support collaboration and respect for the diversity of voices concerned about the health of families.
For over 30 years, we have been at the forefront of developing innovative strategies in maternal and child health care. Since our founding, we have managed over 60 different programs designed to empower families to lead healthier lives.
We work to improve the region’s health by educating communities, advocating for system improvements and engaging with stakeholders. SNJPC addresses every element of care, from the individual to the health care system to policymakers.
As the Maternal & Child Health Consortium serving South Jersey, we are focused on improving the health of families in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. The region as a whole has about 21,000 births each year and we are concerned about the health of each and every one. We monitor our success with a sophisticated data collection and analysis program that is used to identify emerging health trends and create effective interventions.
All hospitals providing maternity care in South Jersey are members of the Cooperative with designated seats on our Board of Directors. The Cooperative is proud of the strong and dynamic relationship built with member hospitals - a partnership that promotes the best in health care for South Jersey families.
