Oklahoma State University recently opened the A. R. and Marylouise Tandy Medical Academic Building, a medical education facility with an advanced hospital simulation center, on its Tulsa, Okla., campus.

The four-story, 84,000-square-foot building supports hands-on instruction and training within the university’s Center for Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine. The 20,000-square-foot simulation center features four simulation suites, with a flexible configuration, for ICU, birthing, trauma, and surgery. Each suite has audio-visual recording technology to provide feedback on simulation activities and high-functioning, programmable simulation mannequins enable hands-on training within the suites.

The medical education facility also includes active learning classrooms, lecture halls, a conference center, and student support and study areas. The first floor houses the hospital simulation center, the second floor focuses on clinical skills, the third floor supports instruction in osteopathic manipulative medicine, and the fourth floor features the 3,185-square-foot conference center with a tiered lecture hall and two outdoor terraces.

Dewberry provided architecture, interior design, technology, and structural engineering; and Lee & Browne provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for the project. Flintco served as construction manager.
