Support Pediatrics

The Cooper Foundation is committed to supporting the needs of our littlest patients and their families.

Our partnership with individuals, families, corporations and foundations has allowed us to continually enhance our facilities, invest in the latest technology, provide training and educational opportunities for our staff and create health and wellness programs that benefit entire families.

From hospital stays to office visits we also want to ensure the social and emotional needs of our patients by creating a nurturing environment where patients, siblings and families can express their thoughts and feelings in a safe place.

With your support, Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper is able to continue providing world-class, compassionate care right here in South Jersey.

Johnny M. Playroom & Teen Lounge

A hospital stay can be a difficult time for children and their families. The Johnny M. Playroom and Teen Lounge were created to promote play, interaction and fun for children and families. Outfitted with toys and games these spaces are often a welcome retreat from a hospital room. The Johnny M. Playroom also features a parents/family lounge with seating and a kitchen to promote family bonding time.

Art Therapy & Music Therapy

For children diagnosed with an illness or admitted to a hospital, the experience can be frightening and confusing. Often patients need an outlet to express their thoughts and emotions. Through the Art Therapy and Music Therapy Funds, pediatric patients will benefit from art and music therapy through the Child Life Program.
