WMH/LSSU Superior Simulation Center Project Design
A four-year dream of establishing a state-of-the-art nursing skills simulation center on Lake Superior State University’s Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. campus is now realized. An agreement signed March 7 with War Memorial Hospital transforms LSSU’s existing Superior Simulation Center into a regional center that will train and reach more healthcare professionals not only in the international Great Lakes region, but throughout North America as well.
The expanded collaboration with WMH will lead LSSU to develop new healthcare programs of study. It will also let the two institutions tap one another’s attributes to sponsor larger conferences that draw medical professionals from Canada, the U.S.A. and beyond, generating new revenue streams for both LSSU and WMH. The simulation center’s enhanced capacity for teaching – along with the inevitable growth of partnerships with War Memorial – holds promise to increase enrollment in the LSSU Nursing program by more than 30%.
The simulation center design project on the main campus of Lake Superior State University is progressing as expected. The new space should be completely renovated and ready for student simulation education beginning the first week of October.
The War Memorial Hospital Superior Simulation Center at Lake Superior State University officially opened its door by celebrating with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, September 21st.
