Copper Queen Community HospitalBisbee, AZ
Design Achievement - The Copper Queen Community Hospital has been serving Bisbee and other Southeast Arizona communities for more than 125 years, constantly looking for ways to improve patient care and deliver the best healthcare services. The expansion and renovation of the Southeast Wing enhances the Hospital’s ability to provide the best healthcare within a modern, healing environment. DLR Group’s design offers state-of-the-art facilities providing the necessary flexibility to accommodate the changes in healthcare delivery. The current Hospital building dates to 1960 and the need to improve its visual identity and patient accessibility was a major concern. The new design reconfigures the site entry process, improving wayfinding, patient and visitor parking, while offering a 21st Century “makeover” of the exterior facade.
Scope Summary - The project totals 12,000 SF of renovated and new spaces, including an expansion of 8,000 SF containing a new nine-exam room emergency department, ambulance entrance, helistop, new CT Scan room, as well as outpatient testing and conference space. The renovated area totals 4,000 SF and includes a new clinical laboratory, inpatient pharmacy, emergency department lobby/waiting room, plus an expanded main hospital lobby and waiting areas.
