About Cooper University Health Care - Critical Care Medicine
Critical care physicians care for seriously ill or injured patients while they are in the hospital. We work in cooperation with the patient's primary care physician and other medical or surgical specialists as needed.
When a patient has a serious illness or has suffered serious trauma, we direct the highest caliber of attention to their critical care needs. Our critical care specialists have the most sophisticated medical equipment at their disposal and, when patients must be transported here from area hospitals, an experienced team of critical care transport specialists provide ongoing monitoring during ground or air transport.
Along with patients from the immediate area, Cooper receives transfers of critically ill patients from more than 25 hospitals in South Jersey. By air or land, the Cooper Transfer System Center transports patients to Cooper for the highest quality of critical care.
