The Greenville HealthCare Simulation Center (GHSC) opened in 2007 at GHS and was the first of its kind in Upstate South Carolina.
Now located on the second floor of the Health Sciences Education Building on GHS’ Greenville Memorial Medical Campus, the GHSC serves as the regional simulation center and is a member of the HealthCare Simulation South Carolina collaborative. Each of the GHSC’s 11 simulation rooms can function as a virtual hospital environment, including specialty rooms set up for Labor and Delivery, Intensive Care and Surgery. Additionally, the GHSC is home to a 48-seat procedure room for performing clinical tasks and two 24-seat classrooms.
The center is equipped with the latest simulation manikin technology, including adult, child and infant patient simulators, as well as state-of the-art video and data capture system for assessment and debriefing of student performance.
