OSF HealthCare - Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center

Peoria, IL

New Jump Trading Simulation Center Construction in Peoria IL

Project location: 1306 N Berkely Avenue, Peoria IL, 61603

 

P.J. Hoerr worked with OSF Healthcare to create a one of the top jump trading simulation centers in the world. Jump Simulation, a collaboration between OSF Innovation and and the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria, is one of 20 centers to achieve accreditation in five areas of distinction by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. This project transformed the 3rd & 4th floors into a shared working environment for several OSF HealthCare departments.  Simulation labs at Jump replicate every kind of clinical space from the ambulance to the patient care room, intensive care unit, surgical suite and beyond. Each space is fully equipped with state-of-the-art medical devices and technology. Additionally, private viewing areas outside each space allow for facilitator observation that does not obstruct the simulation experience.

 

Building Information Modeling (BIM) was used on this project to coordinate the MEP / FP above ceiling rough-in and utility routing prior to that phase commencing.

The Challenge

Create a shared working environment for several OSF Health Care Departments.

The goal was to construct a simulation and education center that would be used to teach new skills to physicians, medical students, and medical professionals. The facility would be a virtual hospital that combines actual medical equipment and the latest simulation technology.

The Process

Construction began on the 3rd & 4th floors of Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center in mid- 2015. This project transformed the floors into a shared working environment for several OSF HealthCare departments. Building Information Modeling (BIM) was used on this project to coordinate the MEP / FP above ceiling rough-in and utility routing prior to construction commencing.

The Result

The simulation and education center combines medical equipment with the latest simulation technology to facilitate better education, performance training and research for both medical students and medical professionals. The ultimate goal of the project was to improve patient health outcomes while lowering healthcare costs.

The center occupies 60,000 square feet on the 3rd and 4th floors of the six-story, 168,000-square-foot building on the hospital’s campus. It encompasses simulation spaces, as well as classrooms and a conference center. The building features seven distinct simulation areas:

A virtual ICU

A virtual operating room and trauma lab

A virtual patient care unit, including six actual size rooms

A virtual reality lab

An anatomical skills lab

A regional transport center, complete with an ambulance and apartment-like set up for simulating rescues

An innovation lab

Although many spaces are design-based on a live hospital situation, the overall design criteria utilized a higher education approach with an emphasis on innovation.
