OMC donates Laparoscopic Equipment to South Central Career Center

Ozarks Medical Center’s (OMC) Surgical Services Department recently upgraded their laparoscopic equipment and donated their used equipment to the South Central Career Center’s (SCCC) Surgical Technology Program. Surgical Services Director Tim Kimball said, “OMC was happy to make this donation to help train local scrub techs in this minimally-invasive surgery technique.”

Misty Hathcock, Program Director at the SCCC, was thrilled to accept the donation. “To have this equipment is a fantastic opportunity for students practice running the camera and scopes in a simulated setting. We would not have been able to purchase equipment like this, and now the students are able to get this experience before they go into a clinical situation.”

The equipment is being used in the Principles and Practices for Surgical Technology class at the SCCC. The SCCC is now accepting applications for Fall 2016. You can visit for more information.
