Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.

For Health Professionals

Virtual Education and Simulation Training Center

Imagine a seven-room hospital, where doctors gain a firm foundation in surgical techniques, hand-to-eye coordination and repetitive skills exercises-before they pick up a scalpel to operate on a real patient.

At ChristianaCare’s Virtual Education and Simulation Training Center, babies are born every day, just as they are in a real hospital. Adults and children are rushed to the emergency department with injuries suffered in accidents. Patients are intubated, have their blood drawn and get IV drips.

The Virtual Education and Simulation Training Center is outfitted to function like a hospital, complete with a trauma bay, intensive care unit, operating room and standardized patient rooms.

But the patients are manikins, adult and pediatric high-fidelity human patient simulators that breathe, speak, blink their eyes and respond to stimuli. Controlled by computers to simulate various conditions, the manikins produce heartbeats, bowel sounds and blood pressure readings.

Doctors gain crucial experience dealing with high-risk conditions that rarely occur so they can provide the best care when those situations do arise. Audio and visual recordings enable learners to review and analyze their work.

The facility has received certification as a Level I Educational Institute by the American College of Surgery, a designation for providers of comprehensive education in enhancing patient safety through simulation.

The 9,000-square-foot center is equipped with a working laparoscopy station with simulated tissues, an endoscopy/bronchoscopy simulator, 3D visualization software and display, with more than 100 task trainers.
