Scottsdale Healthcare Military Partnership
The Scottsdale Healthcare Military Training Center in Scottsdale, Arizona is a 7,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility where human simulators bleed and imitate battlefield trauma injuries in order to provide hands-on training to military medical personnel. It serves as the hub for Scottsdale Healthcare's Military Partnership, giving students hands-on experience during clinical rotations that include the Level 1 Trauma Center at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center. The facility also is used for training local paramedics and firefighters, as well as Scottsdale Healthcare staff members. Active duty and reserve units from across the U.S., including Hawaii and Guam, have trained in Scottsdale. Trainees have come from the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve, Army Reserve and Army National Guard. Trainees include military physicians, nurses, medics, OR techs, pharmacy techs, lab techs, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and mental health professionals, as well as medical administrative and logistics personnel. The Military Training Program offers training and experience in Trauma, Burns, Pediatric Trauma, Behavioral Health, EMS ride-alongs, air ambulance and more. Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center is one of the first civilian hospitals in the U.S. to provide military trauma training. The Scottsdale Healthcare Military Partnership has trained 1,000 service members since 2004. Through its Military Partnership, Scottsdale Healthcare also plays a key role in regional disaster preparedness. The non-profit community-based hospital system's partnerships with the military led to the creation of Arizona's Coyote Crisis Campaign regional disaster response exercise. Scottsdale Healthcare is the community-based, nonprofit parent organization of the Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center, Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center and Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital, Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare, Scottsdale Healthcare Research Institute and Scottsdale Healthcare Foundation.
