A Message from Robert A. Ortiz, Jr., J.D.

Rob OrtizWe Made a Call for Help and So Many of You Answered!

Since launching the COVID-19 Assistance Fund, our community has mobilized to support front-line healthcare professionals at Cooper University Health Care. On behalf of everyone at Cooper, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Many of you have already reached out offering to help. Your donations will provide medical equipment and supplies for Cooper physicians, nurses, medical students, and staff caring for people who have come into contact with the virus. 
The Need Is Still Great
The New Jersey Commissioner of Health announced that Cooper University Health Care would be one of three health systems in New Jersey operating as a coordinating entity in anticipation of the COVID-19 surge and the need for critical care beds. Cooper will coordinate all of the Southern NJ counties.
As the only Level 1 Trauma Center in southern New Jersey, the region is counting on our expertise. Your continued generosity will help ensure our team has the equipment they need to treat and protect our workers, our patients and our community.

Right now, we may be physically separated, but we are closer than ever.

Thank you for your support!
