Cutting-edge simulation center providing BMC staff with the most realistic simulation experience possible using state-of-the-art mannequins

Solomont Clinical Simulation and Nursing Education Center

At the Solomont Center caregivers use computer-controlled simulators to develop and refine skills, and learn new procedures and treatment protocols before using them on actual patients. In the spring of 2013, Boston Medical Center completed construction on a 5000 square-foot state-of-the-art simulation center in the home of the former Newton Pavilion Emergency Department. The new center consolidates various simulation areas around the hospital, including those located in Anesthesia, Nursing, Pediatrics and the Emergency Department. The simulation center gives staff the most realistic simulation experience possible using state-of-the-art mannequins programmed with predefined scenarios.
