Kaiser opens simulation lab with $1 million federal grant

San Francisco Business Times, September 29, 2009

Kaiser Permanente announced that a unit of the federal Department of Health and Human Services has given it a $1 million, three-year grant to help fund its internal Simulation Program, which lets nurses and other caregivers practice life-saving skills and decision making in a simulated environment. The grant allows Kaiser to open its new Medical Simulation Lab at its new Broadway Medical Office Building in Oakland, part of its Oakland Medical Center campus, which is being expanded and upgraded for seismic and other reasons.
