Capital Health recently announced the launch of its new Advanced Simulation Training Center, a mobile simulation laboratory that provides state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary clinical training for physicians, nurses, emergency medical service providers, and other staff. On top of its clinical training mission, the Advanced Simulation Training Center will provide health education and wellness screenings at local community-based events. The initiative was made possible through more than $500,000 of federal grant funding secured by Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12), who was recognized for her role in the project at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Capital Health Regional Medical Center.
Capital Health’s Advanced Simulation Training Center is a mobile facility that has two large, independent simulation rooms equipped with life-sized models of human bodies to simulate real patient scenarios. Instructors in two central control rooms create situations that learners will see in real life, document their performance, and provide meaningful feedback for safe training in advanced cardiac life support, interventional procedures, acute care, childbirth, and other clinical areas. Additionally, the simulation labs will be used for process improvement, medical error investigation, and research to help Capital Health continue to advance health care quality, safety, and best practices.
Capital Health is the Central New Jersey/Lower Bucks County region’s leader in providing progressive, quality patient care with significant investments in physicians, nurses and staff, as well as advanced technology like the Advanced Simulation Training Center.
