Barton Malow was selected by Florida Hospital to provide Construction Management services for the new Nicholson Center for Surgical Advancement (NCSA) project, on their Celebration Healthcare Campus, in Celebration Florida.

The Nicholson Center is a 50,000 SF world-class center for hands-on surgical instruction, and is the first of its kind in Central Florida, which makes this a very unique project. The NCSA will provide participants surgical education courses that teach them minimally invasive surgical skills that will benefit them in their own medical practices. The NCSA also features unmatched teleconferencing technology that connects each element of the center: The Surgical Learning Laboratory, Education Center, and Operating Room with any outside venue.

Each learning station within the Nicholson Center mirrors a typical surgery suite and is outlined with teleconferencing technology. This allows for global distance learning opportunities at the highest degree. The NCSA’s Education Center will allow for symposiums, educational workshops, conferences and seminars of up to 150 in-house participants and will also be connected globally via teleconferencing system.

The objective of the Nicholson Center for Surgical Advancement is to develop and provide cutting edge surgical knowledge and techniques and share them with the global surgical community through state of the art technology. The inclusion of full official daVinci® robot simulation training courses truly makes the NCSA an industry leader in advanced surgical learning.

The Nicholson Center is LEED Silver Certified from the USGBC.
