This project creates a world-class facility for collaboration in biomedical research and education, commercialization, and community health in Akron’s Biomedical Corridor. The facility consists of redeveloping and improving approximately 40,000 SF and the installation of computer-based simulation mannequins, task trainers, and state-of-the-art audiovisual and education tools. The facility houses the Center for Clinical and Community Health Improvement and the Institute’s offices, featuring a 20,000 SF Center for Simulation and Integrated Healthcare Education (CSIHE). The CSIHE includes development of wet labs for educational demonstration purposes, ICU medical/surgery and OR simulation rooms, 8 mock exam rooms, a 100 seat auditorium, orientation and debriefing rooms.
The project is on the basement and first three floors of a six-story occupied building. Operational capability was maintained for floors four through six for the duration of the project.
