Sim Center

Safety-First Sim Center

A historic Roanoke building known as the “Trolley Barn” (which once housed streetcars undergoing repairs) became Carilion’s new Center for Simulation, Research and Patient Safety—or Sim Center for short. The 13,000-square-foot facility features four advanced simulation rooms—including a trauma bay, an operating room and two patient rooms. The Sim Center also boasts two manikins, computer rooms, a skills lab and debrief rooms to complete a holistic facility capable of reproducing just about any hospital situation.
