An unwavering commitment to preventive care shapes the mission of Cooper Clinic—health care specialists offering a broad range of clinical services focused on proactive wellness. Since its inception, Cooper Clinic has been a partner in good health for more than 105,000 people and conducted more than 275,000 physical exams by a preventive health care team that delivers unmatched medical expertise and unequaled personal attention.

Proof is in the Numbers
As a result of more than 40 years of preventive medicine research collaboration between Cooper Clinic and The Cooper Institute 501(c)(3), we discovered that a healthy lifestyle including proper weight, regular exercise, good nutrition and routine physical exams will propel a more optimized, longer life.

One of The Cooper Institute’s landmark studies found that moderate exercise—a collective 30 minutes of activity most days of the week—will decrease a person’s risk of dying from any cause by 58 percent. Additional research shows that moderate fitness levels will increase a person’s lifespan by six to nine years.

A review of 240,000 Cooper Clinic exams on 100,000 patients showed that male patients who regularly get an annual exam live to age 87—13 years longer than the average life expectancy for males—and females live to age 90—seven years longer.

The numbers say it all. Improving how you live will improve how well you live. Cooper Clinic will set you on the journey to start and maintain a healthy lifestyle for a longer, more vibrant future.
