As COVID-19 cases continue to decline, Cooper University Health Care closed its COVID-19 testing site on the campus of Camden County College in Cherry Hill with a celebration and tribute honoring the dedicated health care workers who have worked tirelessly for 16 months to provide testing services to the community.
When the first wave of COVID-19 began impacting South Jersey in March 2020, Cooper quickly responded by establishing numerous community-based testing sites in the region. Since testing services began, Cooper has provided COVID-19 testing to 112,357 community residents (as of July 5, 2021) at its various sites including more than 3,000 patients and staff at long-term care facilities throughout South Jersey. While demand has significantly decreased, COVID-19 testing is still available at Cooper’s three Urgent Care Centers in Audubon, Cinnaminson, and Cherry Hill, and at a drive-through/walkup site located in the CCIA Garage adjacent to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
I just want to thank Cooper for saving my life. In February 2021 I was running 104-105 fevers hard time breathing. I did get tested at a local urgent care and I was tested positive for covid. After weeks of fever continuing to elevate and hard time breathing my husband called 911 and I was taken to Springfield hospital in Delaware county (this is where I live) after being in the er for 10 minutes, the Doctor said there is nothing they can do and sent me home. No test were performed at all. No inhaler, nothing. Instead I was giving a script for lorazepam. I get home, fever went to 105. My husband took me to Cooper, in Er I received multiple tests including a CT SCAN. This test shows both my lungs were full of Covid-pneumonia. I received oxygen , Iv antibiotics and was admitted for a week. If it wasn’t for Cooper, I would be here. Thanks you Cooper ❤️
