The White Memorial Medical Center Charitable Foundation in Los Angeles raised $1.4 million for a simulation center, a multidisciplinary training center designed to help staff improve patient safety and patient outcomes of care, according to a news release. 

The Lyman A. Brewer, III MD Simulation Center replicates a multidisciplinary hospital setting to give healthcare professionals and trainees a real-world environment in which to learn, practice and master the latest techniques for patient care. 

“The Simulation Center uses very sophisticated computer-controlled manikins to create realistic patient scenarios to use in training members of our clinical staff,” Lynne Whaley, RN, MS, chief nurse executive and senior vice president of clinical operations, said in the release. “It’s a place where physicians, medical students, nurses and other medical personnel can improve their skills and learn by doing, without risk to any patients. The center is an essential component of continuing medical education. It’s amazing to see all that can be experienced at our simulation center.”
