Cooper Health to open new pediatric infusion unit

By ,

Camden-based Cooper University Health Care is set to launch the new John E. Kostic Pediatric Infusion Center with a $400,000 donation to the Cooper Foundation.

The Camden center will provide family-centered care to children requiring long-term infusion therapy for various illnesses. With infusion therapy—often used for cancer patients—medications are injected through a sterile catheter rather than taken orally.

The therapy will be administered to infants, children and adolescents that require on-going intravenous therapy for illnesses including juvenile diabetes and blood, genetic and gastrointestinal disorders.

The space is designed to encourage one adult caregiver to remain with their child during their treatment, allowing care providers to educate patients and their families on family-centered care.
