Awards & Recognition

The Charitable Foundation at White Memorial Medical Center (WMMC) successfully raised $1.4 million for a Simulation Center, a multidisciplinary training center designed to help staff improve patient safety and patient outcomes of care.

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 mannequins to create realistic patient scenarios to use in training members of our clinical staff," said Lynne Whaley, RN, MS, chief nurse executive & senior VP of clinical operations. 

The models: SimMan, SimWoman and SimChild, can simulate everything from a patient requiring a simple vital sign reading to one suffering a massive coronary or even a mother ready to deliver her baby.
