As frontline health care professionals, nurses are the true heroes who risk everything to care for patients. In Pearland, a new building facility will be built to provide clinical education and training for almost 7,000 Pearland nurses.

Here is the story covered by

The HCA Healthcare Center for Clinical Advancement will span 48,400 square feet at Pearland Town Center, 11200 Broadway St., just west of State Highway 288, according to a press release. It will feature high-fidelity hospital simulation labs, connected classrooms, and de-briefing rooms. The center is expected to open by early 2021.

“Bringing the latest teaching technologies under one roof in a new, advanced facility is a major step in preparing our nurses to provide the highest level of care,” Kelli Nations, chief nurse executive at HCA Houston Healthcare, said in the release.

Depending on the service line and certification requirements, Pearland nurses might spend up to 22 weeks training at the center. The center will also serve as a hub for all HCA Houston Healthcare new-hire orientations and the division’s Leadership and Organizational Development training. The second floor of the facility will accommodate new-hire orientation for up to 250 employees, while clinical education will take place on the first floor.

The goal of the facility is to standardize training across HCA Houston Healthcare’s 13 Houston-area hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, freestanding emergency centers, and freestanding diagnostic imaging facilities, per the release.

“The HCA Healthcare Center for Clinical Advancement is a significant part of our strategic nursing plan to support and grow our nurses as the differentiator at our hospitals and other facilities,” Nations said. “It certainly helps us raise the bar for nursing care in Houston.”
