The Intermountain Healthcare Simulation Center is a 10,000-square foot training facility headquartered at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City with 10 labs spread throughout Utah and southern Idaho. Through advanced simulation technology, we provide training to thousands of hospital, homecare, and clinic professionals every year.
Our goal is to promote patient safety by helping clinicians prevent errors and perform more effectively in crisis situations. We do this by using robotic manikins that mimic health conditions and respond to treatment methods. Coupled with video recording and a live-feed conference room, our training methods allows healthcare professionals to practice in a low-risk environment under close supervision.
The simulation center has also collaborated with Intermountain Healthcare’s telehealth team to incorporate telehealth technology into our simulations giving trainees the opportunity to work with the same technology used in real hospital settings.
We offer a variety of training courses from nursing unit orientation to workplace violence. All courses include principles from the Intermountain Healing Commitments, Crisis Resource Management, and Zero Harm.
We are dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare simulation for medical professionals. Moving forward, our goal is to expand within the Intermountain Healthcare system and to accredit our training program through the Society for Simulation in Healthcare.
