In March 1992, Dr. Karen Addis and her husband Dr. Walt Patton opened Copperstate OB/GYN, a premier women’s healthcare facility focused on providing exceptional care and expert guidance to women of all ages. Today, Dr. Addis & her team celebrate 30 years of empowering and supporting women throughout every stage of life by launching I Am Woman: A Celebration of Womanhood.
After opening Copperstate almost 30 years ago, Dr. Addis will be retiring at the end of 2021. We truly appreciate her endless commitment to women’s health and mentoring of all the providers at Copperstate.
“It is bittersweet for our Copperstate family to announce that after 41 years of OB/GYN practice in Tucson, Dr. Karen Addis will be retiring at the end of this year. She and her husband founded Copperstate almost 30 years ago, and in addition to caring for the women of Tucson, she has trained, mentored, and supported all of the physicians and providers at Copperstate. Her great surgical skills and empathetic patient care have made her an incredible role model. Her calm, gentle, and kind ways have been a steady presence in our office. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with her and learn from her. We wish her much happiness and fulfillment in the next phase of her life.” – Dr. Kathy Farias
“The legacy of care continues, with a wonderful group of doctors, nurse practitioners and PAs. We have a camaraderie and legacy of care, quality and hope. Each one of us loves what we do, and I hope and pray that continues on after I retire at the end of this year.” – Dr. Addis
Copperstate OB/Gyn is excited to announce the launch of our Facebook Community – Tucson Women: Healthy Living.
Each day we’re fielding questions on various health topics from our patients. We wanted to create a place to answer these pregnancy, self-care and lifestyle questions and highlight our providers unique perspectives on health topics they’re passionate about.
Tucson Women: Healthy Living provides an intimate educational space for women to learn from the Copperstate physicians, physician assistants (PACs) and nurse practitioners (NPs), ask questions within the community, share resources and feel empowered with the information they need to live a healthy life.
We know our patients have questions about how to best protect themselves and baby from COVID-19. Our team will do our best to keep you informed by sharing up-to-date information and recommendations. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call our office at (520) 721-8605.
Are you pregnant and have been diagnosed with COVID-19? If so please give our office a call at 📞 (520) 721-8605
Our team wants to share with you how to manage symptoms at home, when you might need to come to the hospital, and how to do that safely for yourself and our hospital staff. We’ll also be wanting to monitor you and baby even more closely throughout your pregnancy to keep you both healthy.
