The University of Toledo wanted to create a resource destination that provided students and staff at all the University’s colleges, the University Medical Center and area hospitals with transformative education and cooperative learning opportunities. BHDP worked with university health professionals and simulation experts to create the Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center, equipped with an i-Space™ — the world’s first five-sided seamless LED virtual reality center for medical training, education and research — and a virtual hospital outfitted with human patient simulators, state-of-the-art clinical equipment, and observation, control and debriefing rooms.
The four-story building also includes a three-story atrium with skylight; 3D/virtual CAD walls; simulated homecare environment; a theater; inter-professional collaboration workspaces; global learning suites; innovation labs and administrative offices. The facility was designed to improve patient safety while reducing operations costs, and is LEED Gold certified.
