Information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Cooper is working to protect those it serves during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Thank you for making Cooper your health care partner. Your health and safety is our number one priority. We have been here, serving you for more than 130 years and delivering high quality care to the community is fundamental to what we do as a leading academic health system.

We understand that this is a time of great uncertainty, due to the rapidly changing health care landscape. You have put your trust in Cooper and we want to reassure you that we are working every day to help mitigate, as much as possible, the impact of the virus in our community. We are also working closely with our health care partners in the region, as well as community, state and federal government agencies.

How You Can Help

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread, personal protective equipment (PPE) for those providing care to infected patients is in high demand. You can help protect our physicians, nurses, medical students, and staff in one of three ways: donating to the COVID-19 Assistance Fund; directly donating masks, gowns, gloves, or eye shields; or donating meals to health care workers.
