The Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation at Hartford Hospital (CESI) at Hartford Hospital is an ideal setting to begin to establish a culture of patient safety and open communication among the interdisciplinary team.
Its mission is to promote excellence in clinical care, advance patient safety and improve multidisciplinary team performance through high-fidelity medical simulation. Participants are able to train in a setting similar to his/her actual work environment to create an atmosphere of realism. Working in this environment lends support to the simulator’s extended capabilities to mimic multiple types of acute crises and patient care scenarios.
Hartford Hospital was home to Connecticut’s first “simulation center” which has grown into CESI, the centerpiece of Hartford Hospital’s pioneering vision to revamp the medical educational system.
CESI is a regional and national training destination. As the second largest surgical center in New England and the Northeast’s largest robotic surgery center, Hartford Hospital continues to be a hub for medical training.
