TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and leaders of the Cooper Health System in South Jersey have announced a cancer treatment partnership with a Texas group.

The agreement announced Monday involves the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The alliance involves Cooper University Health Care in Camden, N.J., and plans for a $100 million cancer hospital.

Christie called the pairing "a new innovative alliance."

Cooper Health System chairman George Norcross III described Anderson as "the number one cancer center in the galaxy."
