Ribbon cutting ceremony held outside of SCC’s new simulation lab.

On Tuesday, March 28th, 2017, Southwestern Community College (SCC) in Sylva, North Carolina held a grand opening ceremony for their new state-of-the-art health sciences simulation lab. The lab features the latest simulation technology to be used by students, including simulated dummies for real-life applications such as childbirth and blood samples. The lab includes everything needed to provide a hands-on experience for students enrolled in health science programs, including communication and coordination between different medical and health-related occupations.


Students train using new technologies.

Dr. Mitch Fischer, SCC’s Dean of Health Science is incredibly excited about this opportunity. “Through the generous donations of funds and equipment by TekTone and others, SCC has realized the dream of having a state of the art simulation lab,” he said. “This lab will serve as a primary training facility in which students from many disciplines will have the benefit of working with situations common in their fields. This will allow students to become familiar with procedures and situations prior to seeing them on live patients.”

TekTone is honored to be participating in the development of the new simulation lab through the addition of the Tek-CARE®400P5 nurse call system. We take pride in our local education programs and are excited to be contributing to the ongoing education of many generations of students. Communication is an integral part of any healthcare facility, and SCC is working to build that foundation in their students.


The new lab features a monitoring area that controls what is occurring inside.



With their master campus located in Sylva, North Carolina, SCC is consistently ranked among the best institutions of its kind in the United States. The accredited nursing program especially is held in high regard within the western Carolina region and also throughout the country.

For over 40 years, TekTone has designed and manufactured UL® Listed Tek-CARE nurse call, wireless nurse/emergency call, wander management, Tek-SAFE® area of rescue assistance systems, and Tek-ALERT® integration systems. TekTone products are designed and built in our FDA-registered, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in North Carolina – plus a network of distributors and representatives that stretches worldwide.

eweek 2017

February 19th marks the start of Engineers Week 2017. EWeek (February 19–25, 2017) is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.

At TekTone®, all products are made possible through research and development by our engineering department. From competitive analysis and suggestions from the field, they take ideas and bring them to life. TekTone’s most recent achievement, the Tek-CARE®120, is an engineering feat designed to replace many existing nurse call systems with minimal effort. The fluidity of use and aesthetically pleasing design were designed and manufactured all within the walls of our facility in North Carolina. The recent release of the Tek-CARE® app also demonstrates the never-ending capabilities of the engineering team and their ability to innovate and expand within the Tek-CARE® product line.

Because engineers are so vital, TekTone® assists in the education of local engineering students. TekTone’s engineering department participates in combined programs with Western Carolina University where students can receive hands-on experience with research and development, including the development of products as a part of their capstone course.

The development of engineers starts at a young age, so encourage young students to follow their passion for engineering. Engineers play an ever-increasing role in our day-to-day lives. Take time to celebrate their work this week!

Effective immediately, the PK800A auxiliary power supply for the NC110, 150 and 200 systems is discontinued.

The discontinuation of the PK800A will not alter the capacity load for any of the affected systems. In installations where power consumption is beyond the capabilities of one IH151NK or PK152 power supply, additional IH151NKs can be purchased and installed to use with the original power supply instead of the PK800A.

For more information, please contact the sales department at (800)327-8466 option 2.
