DaVita Clinical Research (DCR), a Minneapolis, Minn.-based specialty CRO, now can offer its sponsors increased patient access, on-site ancillary services and specialty physician experience in key therapeutic areas through a partnership with St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood, Colo.
St. Anthony Hospital is a level one trauma center providing a full range of medical specialties and healthcare services to Denver and the surrounding area. The hospital offers specialty care in cardiology, oncology and neurology, as well as a comprehensive stroke center.
“The need for patient populations and close collaboration with specialty physicians for early stage clinical trials continues to increase as drug development companies look to advance their lead drugs,” said Chris Galloway, M.D., DCR medical director. “The collaboration between DCR and St. Anthony Hospital will help meet the goal of providing a full spectrum of phase I/IIa clinical research services in a diverse range of patient populations.”
