USF Health Center Will Set New Standards For Quality Care
USF Health - Lisa Greene
CAMLS’ grand opening is slated for March 30th. Features at the three-story, 90,000 square foot facility include:
- 39 surgical stations, more than the number found at many hospitals, with enough space for the entire healthcare team to train at once. Learners can set up in a 21-station surgical arena, as well as in smaller arenas and other sites, including a robotics suite with two da Vinci robots.
- A hybrid catheterization lab / operating room, the first such training facility in the world, designed to allow health professionals to move from performing an interventional procedure to open surgery in the same setting, without patients having to go through the additional risk of a time-consuming move.
- Another first-of-its-kind trauma operating room that can change environments to suit different training purposes, from providing soothing light and sounds for a complex surgery to mimicking the noise of an urban emergency department and even the desert light and explosive noises of the battlefield environment faced by combat medics.
- In the Virtual Patient Care Center, several standardized patient exam rooms and team training rooms, set up with audiovisual recording to allow for in-depth debriefing and analysis.
- A variety of realistic human patient simulators, from neonatal to adult, including combat casualty and birth simulators.
- Surgical simulators for endoscopics, laparoscopic, interventional vascular, urologic and gynecologic procedures.
- The Tampa Bay Research & Innovation Center, which will bring medical faculty, engineers and other experts together to develop new medical technologies and devices. The center will include machining and rapid prototyping capabilities, allowing new devices to be made, tested, and modified at CAMLS.
