About the Rural SimCenter




Learn About the SimCenter

The Clinical Simulation Center is located at 560 Cohasset Road. The center is part of the Cohasset Campus of Enloe Medical Center. The facility houses mock patient rooms, operating room, nurses station, delivery room, and neonatal nursery. The SimCenter has adult, pediatric, birthing, infant and premie simulators.

There is a nursing station that is fully equipped to allow real life scenarios and allow practice of team skills. The facility is fully integrated with audio/visual equipment to allow digital recording of simulations for debriefing and future review and refinement.

There are two control centers and two conference rooms which overlook the simulation areas via a projection screen. Up to 4 areas can be controlled at one time making it possible to run multiple scenarios simultaneously.

The conference rooms both have full visual capabilities that allow non-participants to view scenarios and critique participants. Both conference rooms are equipped with a DVD player, Computer projection abilities, computer and White Board.
