It includes an operating room, a delivery room and astonishingly lifelike computerized mannequins – some of the most advanced in the world – that can do everything from have a heart attack to deliver a baby.

The UTRGV Smart Hospital will be a valuable resource for UTRGV students from a variety of disciplines and will also be an asset to all of South Texas as it will be available to healthcare providers, first-responders, high school students at area health-focused schools and others that can benefit from clinical simulation.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. with remarks from Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa, M.D., Francisco Fernandez, M.D., founding dean of the UTRGV School of Medicine, and Joseph McCormick, M.D., vice president for South Texas Programs.

A reception will immediately follow the dedication and guests and media will have the opportunity to participate in self-guided tours and interactive simulations throughout the hospital.
