Iowa hospital, Purdue creating simulation suite to train medical staff

Perry, Iowa-based Dallas County Hospital has partnered with Purdue University Global School of Nursing to create a simulation center aimed at training medical staff. 

The simulation center will be located at Dallas County Hospital and will include two simulation suites staged to mock hospital rooms, according to a June 6 press release. Here medical staff will practice patient and family care. 

"Our partnership will allow the ability to provide the tools, education and experience needed for new nurses to embark upon their careers and display the same levels of compassion and competency we witness in our staff today," Angela Mortoza, CEO, and Cindy Peeler, chief clinical officer of Dallas County Hospital, said in a joint statement.  

Purdue University Global has similar simulation partnerships with Anamosa, Iowa-based UnityPoint Health - Jones Regional Medical Center and Lincoln, Neb.-based CHI Health St. Elizabeth Hospital.
