MORRISTOWN, NJ, October 31, 2022 – The Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center is pleased to announce that proceeds from its 20th Mansion in May 2023 Designer Showhouse and Gardens to be held at Three Fields in Mendham Borough, New Jersey will support the expansion and modernization of the Institute of Bioskills Training and Innovation (IBTI) at Morristown Medical Center.
Morristown Medical Center, rated the number one hospital in New Jersey for the fifth year in a row according to U.S. News & World Report, has retained its high level of patient care by continually innovating and teaching medical staff the most advanced medical developments. Established in 2005, the IBTI offers physicians, nurses, medical students and other health professionals a safe and controlled environment in which to practice clinical procedures without risk of patient harm using simulation training. Now nearly two decades old, Morristown Medical Center’s bioskills lab will be upgraded to ensure its team of health care professionals has access to the most modern technology and training resources.
“We are grateful to the Women’s Association for choosing to support our efforts to update and expand the Institute of Bioskills Training and Innovation as part of our unwavering commitment to provide the safest and highest level of care to our community,” said Trish O’Keefe, PhD, RN, president, Morristown Medical Center, and senior vice president and chief nurse executive, Atlantic Health System. “Having the ability to offer the most advanced simulation training for our medical teams continues to be paramount for our highly skilled professionals and ultimately for our patients.”
Mansion in May is the signature fundraiser for WAMMC, generating more than $12 million since its inception in 1974 for Morristown Medical Center. Three Fields will join the list of majestic estates hosting Mansion in May and will be open to the public from May 1 to May 31, 2023. Tickets for private tours and general admission will be available for purchase online beginning February 1, 2023.
