Barton Malow Awarded Florida Hospital's Nicholson Center for Surgical Advancement
Orlando, FL – October 21, 2010 — Construction Manager Barton Malow Company has been awarded the Florida Hospital Nicholson Center for Surgical Advancement (NCSA) project on the Celebration Medical Campus.
The NCSA is a 50,000 SF world-class center for hands-on surgical instruction, and is the first of its kind in Central Florida. 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.
“Barton Malow is ecstatic to have been given the opportunity to be part of such an interesting, state-of-the-art facility that will bring industry leading, cutting edge technology to Central Florida,” said Rod Creach, Vice President of Healthcare for Barton Malow. “This is history in the making.”
Barton Malow breaks ground on the NCSA on October 28, 2010. The project is scheduled for a 2011 substantial completion. HHCP Architects in Maitland, Florida is the designer of the Nicholson Center.
