Last Edited:

It was a big day for Cooper University Health Care as the company officially opened a new outpatient pediatric facility.

On Friday, February 23rd, representatives with the Cooper Foundation and the Children's Regional Hospital at Cooper University Health Care, held a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the new John E. Kostic Pediatric Infusion Center.

The new center was made possible by a $400,000 donation from officials with the John E. Kostic Memorial Foundation.

Cooper officials say it will make going through treatments just a little bit easier for the kids and their families.

"They won't have to stay overnight in a hospital. They'll come in, they'll have places to play, they'll get their infusion [and] they'll be able to go home," said Susan Bass Levin, president and CEO, Cooper Foundation. "It's better for the child, better for the family and that means the child gets better."

The John E. Kostic Pediatric Infusion Center will provide family-centered care to children who require short or long-term infusion therapy, therapeutic injections or provocative stimulation testing.
