  5. Community Health Education and Simulation Center • The current 2500 square foot space was constructed from a nearly $1.7 million in grants with almost $1 million from the Federal Government. • The Norcliff and Archibald Foundations grants combined with Northwest Hospital & Medical Center investment was over $700,000. • The center houses 2 patient simulation rooms, 3 classrooms and a reception area. • There is high fidelity A/V equipment for programming and debriefing. • Trainers that range from low fidelity to high fidelity.

  6. Hospital Goals • To maintain competency and promote new learning for all staff • To promote opportunities for practicing skills and knowledge • To facilitate interdisciplinary communications and team building across the disciplines
