The Pavilion features an expansive lobby and concourse, a restaurant and coffee shop, health resource center, business center, gift shop, and chapel.
The Pavilion also houses the 25,000-square-foot Dr. Edward D. Viner Intensive Care Unit.

Five patient rooms are capable of negative pressure isolation, and five rooms have chambered isolation alcoves. In addition, an enlarged room with operating room caliber lighting is outfitted to perform bedside exploratory laboratory in patients too unstable for transport to the operating room.
In 2013 Cooper celebrated the opening of the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, the $100 million, four-story, 103,050 sq. ft. center located on the Cooper Health Sciences Campus in Camden, dedicated to cancer prevention, detection, treatment and research. MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper offers South Jersey’s only dedicated inpatient, 30-bed cancer unit adjacent to the new cancer center at Cooper University Hospital. The center includes bright, spacious chemotherapy treatment areas, patient exams rooms, conference centers and advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies. The designers incorporated an aesthetic approach to healing with abundant natural light, a rooftop Tranquility Garden, an illuminated floor-to-ceiling “Tree of Life” centerpiece and more than 100 pieces of original art created by 71 New Jersey artists.
Cooper Medical School of Rowan University Medical Education Building is located on the Cooper Health Sciences Campus on South Broadway, between Benson and Washington Streets in Camden. The new $139 million building, which opened in July 2012, was designed for CMSRU’s curriculum with spaces and technologies to support faculty and students in their educational process. In 2012 CMSRU welcomed the class of 2016 with 50 students
