Friends of Copley Program

​Help us help the communities that depend on us.

The Friends of Copley Program is the first step to greater involvement with Copley. Friends of Copley support our purpose, believe in our mission, and serve as a critical connection between Copley Hospital and the community we serve by promoting transparency, accountability, and community involvement. They play an important role in ensuring the needs of the constituencies that we serve are both heard and remain at the forefront of policy and operational decision making.

Friends of Copley receive exclusive, in-house publications and communications that highlight both staff and organizational achievements, awards, and more. Additionally, Friends of Copley may be invited to increase their engagement with Copley by participating in special programs or projects, which align with their interests, or by serving as a community representative on a Board committee where their expertise would be of value.

Semi-annually, all Friends of Copley are invited to a special meeting where they can share their thoughts, observations, and any feedback they have collected. Friends of Copley also receive an invitation to the Copley Health Systems’ Annual Board meeting in January or February.

Individuals who live or work full or part time in the greater Copley Service Area, and who are recommended by a current Friend of Copley or Copley staff member, are eligible to become Friends of Copley. Friends of Copley, who are approved, serve three-year terms with no term limits. Applications are reviewed by the Copley Health Systems’ Governance Committee.
