A donation from the Osteopathic Foundation of West Michigan will help Muskegon County’s sole hospital system improve its patient care and the medical education it provides to students.
Mercy Health’s Regional Simulation Laboratory, a training center for students, instructors and emergency care workers, said this month that it accepted a $12,850 award from the Muskegon-based public charitable foundation to purchase simulation equipment.
The lab, located on Mercy Health’s General Campus, opened in 2010 to help students learn how to provide medical care during life-or-death scenarios. The facility boasts state-of-the-art technology and computerized manikins that can blink, talk, register a blood pressure and perform other human-like functions.
