BISBEE – It was just last May when officials at Copper Queen Community Hospital broke ground on the new 7,000 square foot addition that will become the new emergency room department.

Project manager for the project, John Charley noted as he walked around the new facility – which resembles the old erector sets with i-beams and struts and bolts- the new ER will provide a higher level of care for patients who come in needing medical attention.
