Special Cases : Hospital Patients / Relatives

Hospital patients and relatives may use the Cooley Center following these guidelines: Patients must supply letterhead documentation from the attending physician’s office. The letter serves as a physician’s referral that states he/she may exercise in an unlimited fashion, without supervision and does not pose a threat to another member’s safety. Family members need a similar letter that verifies their status. Contact Membership Coordinator for more details.
