JumpTrading Simulation Center Grand Opening
Simulation Champion Jim Rowland emailed me this week to let me know about a new simulation center in Illinois!
“Lance, I thought you might like to hear what’s happening at Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center of Peoria, IL. Jump is a new 67,000 square foot simulation center, located on the campus of OSF Healthcare, which is scheduled to open on April 24th. Yesterday, Jump received a new ambulance, which was donated by Advanced Medical Transport of Peoria, for our Regional Transport Center, an indoor training facility which features a mock one-bedroom house for extrication and home health training. Jump is a collaboration of OSF Healthcare and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.”
