Marking the Opening of the Cooperman Family Pavilion

With 114 new private, single-patient rooms and neonatal intensive care unit five times the size of the predecessor, this sparkling new facility is a state-of-the-art healing environment.



At several events in September, Saint Barnabas Medical Center proudly celebrated its new Cooperman Family Pavilion. Reflecting the latest in architectural design for a healing facility, this five-story, 241-square-foot pavilion features a two-story glass atrium lobby that is the new point of entry for all patients and visitors to the medical center.

This new facility represents Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s commitment to an ideal of the finest cutting-edge, family-centered care, today and for many years into the future. Introducing it to the community was an occasion worth celebrating. On these pages you’ll see images from the September events. .  

Several successful and energizing events were held during September in celebration of the historic opening of the Cooperman Family Pavilion at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. At left, an exterior view of the new facility.
