View Photos from WMMC's Simulation Center Dedication Ceremony on June 18.

Human Interest Appreciation was expressed to the three Chairs of the fundraising committee: Chief Nurse Executive & Sr. VP of Clinical Operations Lynne Whaley RN, Designated Institutional Officer for Graduate Medical Education Leroy Reese MD, and Chief of Medical Staff Miguel Martinez MD. Special guests at the dedication included Lyman Brewer IV, the son of the center's major donor and namesake who spoke about his dad, and Dr. Brewer's longtime friend Arnold Mulder MD, who shared great stories about the important role Dr. Brewer and our hospital have played in the training and development of physicians and medical professionals in Los Angeles for many decades. Speakers noted that this $1.7 million dollar simulation center was only possible thanks to many generous donors and was entirely funded through donations to the WMMC Charitable Foundation. This state-of-the-art training simulation center is being provided for our medical students, residents, practicing physicians, nurses and MES personnel who are all now able to experience a wide range of clinical training scenarios to enhance service to our community. We especially thank The Lyman A. Brewer III M.D Family, The Ahmanson Foundation, Guillermo de la Viña & Sigue Corporation, WMMC employees, and many others who gave so generously.
