Contracts were awarded Tuesday to create a "virtual hospital" room at Hawkeye Community College and construct a building at the new transportation training center south of campus.

The board of trustees approved a $206,000 contract with Matt Construction of Sumner to remodel part of Grundy Hall for the hospital simulation and other uses. Trustees also awarded a $1.38 million contract to Don Gardner Construction of Waterloo for the building at the Regional Transportation Training Center.

One classroom in Grundy Hall will be remodeled as the hospital simulation. It will include a number of mannequin-like patients programmed to respond as students practice techniques they're learning in nurse training. The simulation will include equipment used in hospitals, as well.

"We will be the second community college in the state to have a virtual hospital," said Hawkeye President Linda Allen. The first is Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.

Another Grundy classroom will be remodeled to better serve the emergency medical service program. Three existing offices also will be remodeled.
