HOUSTON, TEXAS (July 30, 2021) – HCA Houston Healthcare is pleased to announce the opening of the HCA Healthcare Center for Clinical Advancement (HHCCA) which hosted its grand opening on Tuesday, July 27.

The two-story, 48,400-square-foot facility, located in the Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway St., Bldg. 200, is a state-of-the-art training center that hosts five high-fidelity hospital simulation labs with interactive manikin “patients,” five debriefing rooms, and virtually-connected classrooms for nurse training.  It will also serve as a hub for all HCA Houston Healthcare new hire orientations and the system’s leadership and organizational development training.

HCA Houston Healthcare’s nearly 7,000 nurses and nurse residents, will receive advanced training in a facility custom-designed to reflect patient care environments. Special control rooms allow instructors to observe training participants as they learn new techniques or refresh existing skills.
