Banner Simulation Medical Center

The Women Inspiring Scientific Progress giving circle invites you to take an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Banner’s virtual-reality training hospital, The Banner Simulation Medical Center. You can reserve your seats at give.bannerhealth.com/simcenter and if you have questions, contact Lauren Crawford at lauren.crawford@bannerhealth.com or 602.747.4654.

The Banner Simulation System is one of the country's largest simulation education programs to train physicians, nurses, allied health providers, and emergency responders. Banner Simulation sites use mannequins, simulators and virtual-reality programs to offer the next generation of learning.

With a hospital full of virtual-reality "patients,'' Banner employees, medical students, and other health professionals can learn and perfect their medical techniques before they care for real patients in our facilities.

At the heart of our simulation education program is the 55,000-square-foot Banner Simulation Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona, the nation’s largest virtual hospital and one of the biggest centers of its kind in the world. It is complemented by other Banner Simulation sites in Arizona and Colorado, as well as a mobile training program that serves hospitals throughout the Western Region.
