BISBEE — Copper Queen Community Hospital will join with the City of Douglas for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Life Trail Exercise Stations in conjunction with Senior Wellness Appreciation Day.

The ceremony is planned for Thursday, Dec. 17, from noon to 3 p.m. at Airport Park in Douglas. Parking for the event will be available at the Border Air Museum. CQCH has partnered with the City of Douglas to purchase the Life Trail Exercise Stations from the proceeds of the annual golf tournament.

“In addition to these stations, we are also putting in exercise trails in Bisbee and have a partnership with a golf course in Naco,” said CQCH Chief Executive Officer Jim Dickson. ”These efforts are part of our Community Health Improvement Program. We’re committed to this program because we believe exercise is one of the best ways to leverage chronic disease.” Dickson and CQCH Board of Directors President John Harris will be speakers at the event. The public is invited to attend.

Copper Queen Community Hospital has a rich heritage dating back to the 1880s when it operated as a part of the mining community. The 14-bed acute care critical access hospital is one of four hospitals in Arizona recognized as a 100 Top Regional Hospitals. To learn more about CQCH, visit www.cqch.org.
