SimCentral construction on schedule
School of Medicine Regional Dean Richard Jordan, M.D., joined SimCentral Director John Smoot and the crew from SimCentral as they toured the new SimCentral building that is currently under construction on the north side of the Amarillo campus on Coulter St. According to the builders, everything is on schedule and the new SimCentral facility is set to begin classes this fall.
The 20,485-square-foot facility will provide space for teaching clinical simulations using high-tech, state-of-the-art mannequins and computer software. It also will include observation rooms, a large classroom that can be divided into two smaller classrooms and requisite space for support staff and equipment. The project has a $9.75 million budget primarily supported through tuition revenue bonds. The Amarillo Economic Development Corporation also contributed $500,000.
