    Naval Medical Center - Portsmouth

    The Healthcare Simulation and Bioskills Training Center (HSBTC) at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth invited staff, patients and visitors to experience first-hand the simulators and training available during an open house on Sept. 23.

    The Simulation Center’s mission is to provide high-quality, customer-center healthcare simulation and tissue-based training to advance readiness and value through enhanced medical education and patient safety. They do this through three primary lines of operation: Graduate Medical Education Support, Patient Safety/Skills Sustainment Initiatives, and Combat Casualty Care training.

    “Having people come to our sim center shows how much we offer to the hospital and to the Navy,” said Teodoro Castaneda, a simulation operations specialist. “We use high fidelity mannequins to help train the staff on how to treat patients in a safe and controlled environment.”

    NMCP’s Healthcare Simulation Center has remained on the cutting edge of Medical Modeling & Simulation.

    As the U. S. Navy's oldest, continuously-operating hospital since 1830, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth proudly serves past and present military members and their families. The nationally acclaimed, state of the art medical center, including its ten branch and TRICARE Prime clinics, serves the Hampton Roads area and additionally offers premier research and teaching programs designed to prepare new doctors, nurses and hospital corpsmen for future roles in healing and wellness.
