The Dr. R. N. Cooper Municipal General Hospital is a public hospital located in Juhu, Mumbai, India.[1] It is owned by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and is operated under a public-private partnership.[2]

It was started in 1969 as a maternity home before it was converted into a full fledged general hospital in 1970.[3]

The hospital underwent massive reconstruction after the original building was declared unfit for use in 1999. The new upgrade, at a cost of 321 crore, includes more beds, as well as systems for rainwater harvesting and sewerage treatment.[1] The new hospital design includes an infection control design to prevent doctors from contracting tuberculosis while on duty.[4]

A medical college has been planned at the hospital by the BMC. Since the hospital does not have the required 800 bed strength, it has been proposed to jointly run it at Cooper as well as the Bal Thakeray Trauma Care Hospital in Jogeshwari.[5]
