October 24, 2013

From “New FVTC medical training center dedicated” — Fox Valley Technical College held a ceremony Wednesday afternoon to officially dedicate the campus’ health simulation and technology center.

The $66 million facility allows students in numerous medical fields to perform real-life simulations in a realistic hospital setting. The center is the state’s only virtual hospital training center, designed to integrate numerous medical fields into one facility.

The ceremony today honored the completion of the building, as well as the people who made it all happen.

“This building wouldn’t exist without our taxpayers,” Human Patient Simulation Coordinator Bob Sternhagen says,”and they approved the referendum by a major large majority and we’re very happy they did that so we’re going to give them the best possible health care providers we can with this facility.”

The center includes fourteen human simulators, a new ambulance simulator, and a full ER .
