The Multispecialty Department at Cooper University Health Care has a brand new Kwikboost Mobile Charging Station, thanks to a one-time grant from The Cooper CARES Committee. The charging station will allow patients, family and friends to charge their mobile devices while waiting in the reception area.

“The department based patient experience team came up with the idea when they noticed visitors were coming in to the office and needed a charge,” said Margaret Outler, Director of Business Development and Chair of The Cooper CARES Committee.

These charging stations could soon be popping up in other offices at Cooper if patient feedback is favorable.

“We are piloting the device in this busy office. If successful, we will roll it out in to other Cooper offices,” said Outler.

The Cooper CARES program, which is facilitated by The Cooper Foundation, is designed to provide funding to support employee initiatives that will improve Cooper University Health Care. These grants are used to advance the quality of patient care, enhance the atmosphere and make the experience of Cooper more comfortable and enjoyable for patients and visitors.
