The west wing houses the flex room, also known as the multi purpose room. The flex room has multiple partitions that can be configured to divide the room into individual bays for small team training. The room is large enough to be use for disaster training. It can also be set up as a work area for task trainers, mannequins (NYSIM has over 17) or even as a classroom. Learners can practice medical tasks such as tracheal intubation, vascular access and diagnostic ultrasound.
