Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation
Our new Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation (CESI) opened in the winter of 2010 in nearly 20,000 square feet of renovated space. This state-of-the-art training center serves all health care providers throughout Hartford Healthcare’s continuum of care and the greater New England area. Our vision is to be New England’s premier center for comprehensive, experiential learning and innovation using simulation and other leading-edge training technologies. Achieving this vision means improving clinical effectiveness, quality, and patient safety by training and assessing healthcare professionals in life-like patient environments without real-life patient risks.
CESI includes the expansion of our existing Simulation Center, the Center for Advanced Technology and our Minimally Invasive Surgical component, which features advanced technological training devices including surgical task trainers and simulators such as robotic and laparoscopic simulators and pelvic trainers. CESI volumes are projected to more than triple over the next five years for internal customers and quadruple for external customers.
Donors to CESI may be inspired by the opportunity to support the only center of its kind in the Northeast - as well as the Center's ability to attract the brightest and most talented physicians, residents and students to train with leading-edge technologies.
Minimum Goal: $3 million
