The NICU Patient/Family Experience Simulation Lab

The NICU Patient/Family Experience Simulation Lab is a full scale mock up of a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) single family room, showing a portion of the adjoining corridor.  This model was developed as a result of the 2013 Patient & Family Centered NICU Design Competition.  It currently serves as the stage for the Patient Experience Simulation Lab, an interactive learning laboratory that enables health facility stakeholders, designers, providers, researchers and students to "kick the tires" on a healthcare space in order to determine what solutions should be implemented into their new projects.  


Tours of this lab are free and open to healthcare and design professionals.  To schedule a tour, please complete the form below or call the number listed below for more information. Please also check our schedule for a list of simulation lab events.
