The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Healthcare Simulation Center is roughly a 5,000 square foot simulated 4-bed hospital including an Emergency Department/Triage area with ambulance bay, Obstetric/Pediatric Patient Room, Intensive Care/Critical Care Patient Room, Medical-Surgical Patient Room, Nursing Station, and six Debriefing locations. The simulation center is in the MGCCC Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Center so those utilizing the center have access to a large 50-seat classroom, two computer classrooms, and several smaller 10-20 seat classrooms. The Healthcare Simulation Center is available for use by MGCCC students and faculty and is also open to community partners and the public as a wonderful venue for training and education. If you are interested in using the Simulation Center for your next training or education program please email or call the Director of the Healthcare Simulation Lab, Tiffany Zyniewicz, for a current schedule and price list.

The MGCCC simulation center has access to a wide variety of simulation scenarios through the National League for Nursing Simulation in Nursing Series as well as scenarios that have been written and designed by the Director of the Simulation Center and Nursing and Allied Health faculty. Students attending Nursing and Allied Health programs at MGCCC will experience simulation each semester as part of their coursework to help them be successful in their programs and provide safe and quality care to their patients. If you are a community partner or public organization looking to utilize the MGCCC Healthcare Simulation Center for your staff education and training needs, we have the expertise to help you design custom simulation scenarios and programs to meet the educational needs of your staff and assist with the implementation of simulation into your organization. Please contact Tiffany Zyniewicz for a current list of available scenarios or for information about how the staff at the simulation center can help you meet your patient quality and safety goals through simulation integration.
