Southeastern Community College Health Professions Center
The new Health Professions Center at Southeastern Community College North Campus in West Burlington, Iowa responds to a shortage of workers who possess the specialized skills necessary for the healthcare industry. DLR Group’s design creates a virtual hospital, featuring patient simulation labs, an ambulance simulator, modern instructional spaces and cutting-edge technology throughout the 38,000 SF facility.

Once scattered across campus, the new center brings all healthcare programs under one roof. Five different lab spaces provide students with the hands-on training they need to learn medical procedures and practice patient care on lifelike simulators. An ambulance simulation room offers EMT students real-world experience by treating replica patients in a working ambulance.
