The open concept processing and nursing areas enables sponsors to benefit from increased flexibility and efficiency in safely conducting complex study designs requiring large panel sizes.
“In response to our sponsors’ early phase development needs, we’ve added 41 hospital beds to our existing footprint. The new clinic is a great addition to our existing facility. The flexibility in the open concept design allows for increasingly complex protocol functions to occur either in a common area or at the bedside. This design feature, coupled with the ability to perform studies requiring intensive safety monitoring, makes this a unique space. The clinic has been designed for safety, functionality and the comfort of our study participants, and will allow us to continue to increase our service offering in the early phase market.” stated Ingrid Holmes, Vice-President Clinical Operations, Algorithme Pharma Inc.
