TMC donates modular building to Copper Queen complex in Douglas

Tucson Medical Center is donating a massive 5,200-square-foot modular building to create a physical therapy office at the Copper Queen Medical Associates Rural Health Complex in Douglas.

“With this donation, we are happy to be able to support the important work that the Copper Queen Community Hospital is doing for the Southern Arizona community,” said Judy Rich, TMC HealthCare president & CEO. “It is good to know that the modular building that provided a space for us to serve so many people while our campus underwent various development projects will continue to help patients.”

Modular 1The huge modular structure is being moved from the TMC campus to its new home at 100 E. 5th St. in Douglas, beginning Dec. 2. The building is separated into six units for the move and will be reassembled in Douglas.

“When we keep healthcare local, we keep high-quality, cost effective services easily accessible to our patients, and keep experienced professionals nearby to care for their neighbors and friends,” said Jim Dickson, Copper Queen Community Hospital CEO. “This gift from Tucson Medical Center is creating a new level of collaboration between their hospital and ours to improve care across Southern Arizona.”

The CQMA Douglas Complex has been undergoing an extensive renovation and expansion of the medical services provided in the community. With the installation of the modular building, physical therapy services will be expanded and enhanced. Over the past year, Dickson and hospital officials have been working with the Douglas City Council to enhance and expand the existing healthcare services provided by Copper Queen Medical Associates. The construction is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2015.

In addition to the physical therapy services, the $4 million project includes:

  • 11,000 additional square feet of space
  • A Quick Care facility for ‘no appointment’ visits
  • Enhanced and expanded diagnostics (laboratory & radiology)
  • A Computed Tomography (CT) scanner
  • Expanded parking facilities

The DLR Group has been selected as the architect and Lloyd Construction Company will serve as the general contractor. Both have offices in Tucson.
