"Clinically stimulating to force critical thinking resulting in life-saving outcomes. Honing skills in an environment like no other.”

– Greg Porter, Assistant Director, Ross/West View EMSA

STAR’s second anniversary celebration featured the unveiling of its Ambulance Simulator, the back portion of a real ambulance installed at the entrance to the virtual hospital. Emergency medical services (EMS) students and practitioners use this simulator to learn or practice their field and transport skills and use STAR’s conference and class rooms for lectures and debriefings.

Taking first-responder simulation to the next level, STAR’s Mobile Ambulance, is a real, ‘on the road’ ambulance. It achieves the pinnacle of simulation for first responders – providers can truly experience resuscitation under real-life conditions.

Funds for the Mobile Ambulance were donated by The Governing Board of The Women’s Committee of West Penn Hospital.
