Nursing and midwifery students can now access a simulated hospital environment in Whyalla with the re-launch of Horizon Hospital and Health Service.

The purpose-built teaching hospital opened its doors to students and clinicians last Friday, 10 May.

The upgrades include more beds, computers at each station, extra oxygen and suction systems, a new medical safe and fridge, ceiling-mounted camera systems for assessment, as well as furnishings and fresh paint throughout.
