The Center for Learning and Innovation at Memorial Medical Center is a joint venture with Southern Illinois University that will be a hub of activity for the medical campus and serve as a premier teaching facility in central Illinois.
The building features a large flexible conference center, surgical skills lab and a variety of simulation labs. This state-of-the-art facility focuses on equipping students with the skills they need to treat patients in an environment that mimics an actual healthcare facility.
The simulation labs include a standard patient care room model, intensive care labs, exam rooms and an emergency department that prepares healthcare students for the evolving healthcare industry. The center also has formal and informal lecture halls for instruction and a 300-seat conference center with cutting edge communication tools.
