Zamierowski simulation center

The Zamierowski Simulation Center, opened in spring of 2017, enables clinicians to practice and improve their skills, safely try new procedures and simulate high-risk situations, so they are prepared when called upon in an emergency. Thanks to our generous donors, SMH is the first community hospital in the region to offer an on-site simulation center for the continuing education of our associates.
