A Simulation Training Centre has officially opened at the Cypress Regional Hospital.

The lab is capable of simulating various medical scenarios in which students and staff can practice with life like response from the mannequins used. The lab features a adult mannequin, a 5-year-old mannequin and a new born mannequin all capable of various health emergencies and ailments.

One special family is to thank for all this.

Full Interview with Beth Vachon{mp3}bethapril20{/mp3}”This has been the vision of Dr. Lee for past few years,” said Cypress Health Region CEO Beth Vachon. “when she came back to the community and started working with the University and our family medicine resident. She was really looking for a way to enhance their education as well as insure that all of our existing professionals have the ability to really look at how they maintain their skills and really keep that up to date.”

The Dr. Irwin Noble Foundation partnered with the Cypress Health Region to make this possible. Dr. Tara Lee was a driving force behind the new clinic.

Full Interview with Dr. Tara Lee{mp3}taralee{/mp3}”I’m really excited,” said Dr. Lee. “It’s actually amazing we got this sim lab together so quickly it usually takes awhile. I’m really excited how the room is set up and it’s highly technical, I didn’t have a large part of that. There was a lot of people who helped that’s for sure.”

Two major donations received by the foundation during the 2011 Radiothon was $100,000 donation from the Lee/Irwin family and a $35,000 donation from Cenovus Energy.
