Danbury Hospital recently announced that they have been awarded a grant from the Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority (CHEFA) to obtain an Ultrasonography/Transthoracic Echocardiology Simulator. The grant of $71,800 is part of CHEFA’s Client Grant Program, and will enable medical staff to train clinicians in the techniques associated with transthoracic echocardiography, and ultrasound guided pericardiocentesis procedural training. In a Danbury Hospital Simulation Lab press release, Ramin Ahmadi, Chair of Medical Education and Research at Danbury Hospital, is quoted saying:
“As our organization continues to transform care delivery, the importance of training tools such as this Simulation Lab cannot be over-stated. This will allow our clinical teams and resident interns an important opportunity to practice their craft using state-of-the-art simulation. We are so grateful to CHEFA for this financial support and endorsement of our ongoing approaches to quality improvement.”
CHEFA recently announced $1 million in grants to 15 of its nonprofit client agencies throughout the state of Connecticut.
