The Chief Medical Officer Dr. John Vozenilek for the center said it will be a hub for developing new procedures and medical devices. It will also be an asset for practicing doctors and medical students in Peoria.
Dr. Vozenilek said the center is a rare tool to have in the community and it is already drawing in top medical professionals from all over the country. He said, "This is a rare opportunity and in fact, if you look across the nation in what's out there in healthcare innovation and simulation, there's maybe one in San Diego, one center in Washington D.C. and then we have here in Peoria and it's really an exciting project to be part of."
It will be open on April 25.
