Advancing Holistic Education and Health Care

NSU Health is raising the bar on a new standard of health care in South Florida – and its new Interprofessional Simulation Complex (SimCom) plays a prominent role. This world-class facility supports NSU Health’s exceptional patient care through augmenting educational experiences, enriching clinical training, and accelerating medical innovations. NSU knows people want to live, learn, and work where they have access to the best opportunities. Together, SimCom and NSU Health will achieve this.

Construction Has Begun!

The groundbreaking ceremony for our innovative, $56 million, interprofessional research facility was held on November 29, 2022. Construction is expected to last through 2024, with the facility set to open for classes in the fall of 2024.

Giving Opportunities

There’s never been a more critical or timely objective than to educate and deploy dynamic health care leaders. Consider a gift to NSU Health’s SimCom.

You can make a one-time gift or recurring gift pledge to sustain ongoing simulation research and training. Gifts may also support programming that enables high school students interested in health care, or other members of the community, the opportunity to experience hands-on simulation training.

With a minimum gift of $25,000 (which can be paid over multiple years), individuals or companies can establish an endowed fund to support the SimCom’s general operations, student scholarships, research projects, or outfit a space/area with the latest technology. Endowed funds can be named for the donor, his/her family or business, or in memory of a loved one.

Individuals can name a specific room, lab, training space, or common area in the SimCom for themselves or a loved one. Companies interested in branding their business or product in a high-traffic area can secure a naming opportunity for up to five years. Naming gifts begin at $10,000 and investments are used to support ongoing operations, student training, and/or equipment upgrades within the specific space.

Leaving a legacy gift is simple and, in most cases, does not impact a donor’s current financial situation. NSU accepts gifts of life insurance, retirement assets, and bequests. Advancement professionals work with donors (and their legal and financial advisors, when appropriate) to create a customized philanthropic plan.

Interprofessional Collaboration

NSU Health's SimCom will make it easier to prepare NSU graduates to be the health care providers of the future. The complex will provide new and improved training modalities for students in multiple subject areas of the health professions.

By working and learning in collaboration with health care students and faculty, NSU business, computing, or law students pursuing a health concentration can gain an advantage in their career. They will graduate with knowledge and experiences that will empower them to transform whole health care systems or facilitate cutting-edge technologies that foster the well-being of their communities.
