Is This The Most Beautiful Healthcare Simulation Center in the World?
You’ll never guess where one of the most beautiful healthcare simulation centers in the world is located – deep in the heart of Turkmenistan! Look at this wonderful 7 story medical simulation center — a completely turnkey solution from CAE Healthcare. You won’t believe your eyes when you watch this video:
Last year CAE Healthcare announced the details of a previously disclosed record contract to provide a turnkey healthcare simulation training center in Turkmenistan to advance medical education in pre- and post-graduate medicine, nursing and paramedic education. The center is the first to offer multi-disciplinary medical simulation training in Turkmenistan, called the TurkmenSim Medical Simulation Center.
“We are proud to have been chosen to provide the full scope of our capabilities as a healthcare training partner of choice,” said Dr. Robert Amyot, President of CAE Healthcare. “We are delivering a comprehensive solution that includes needs analysis, planning and design of the center, a full portfolio of simulation tools as well as clinical education to train faculty and full-time technicians on site.”
The sale includes 17 CAE healthcare patient, surgical and ultrasound simulators, a fully integrated audiovisual solutions system as well as training and technical support. CAE Healthcare is also providing non-CAE simulators, medical equipment, consumable supplies and furnishings.
The new educational center is being designed and built through an agreement with Gap Insaat and the Turkmenistan Ministry of Health, with CAE Healthcare acting as subcontractor of Gap Insaat for the Ilim Bilim Merkezi simulation center. The seven-story building houses a research center on three floors and the CAE Healthcare solution on four of the floors. The hands-on training center will include simulated emergency and intensive care rooms, operating rooms, standardized patient examination rooms, nursing laboratories, wet and dry laboratories for surgical education, a debriefing area and an ambulance bay.
