Center for Clinical Research (clinical trials)

Center for Clinical Research

CHI recognizes that access to the latest advances in medicine and medical devices is a key component in the management of many diseases. The Center for Clinical Research (CCR) offers professional research management services grounded in standardized procedures, policies and IT infrastructures to manage clinical trials across the CHI network.

CHI’s Center for Clinical Research coordinates clinical trials across CHI, making leading-edge treatments available in the communities we serve.

Patients at CHI cancer treatment centers have participated in a wide array of cancer clinical trials, benefiting from leading-edge research. These trials are sponsored by organizations such as the National Cancer Institute, pharmaceutical makers, and academic research centers. CHI cancer centers can also offer patients the opportunity to participate in cancer prevention, cancer control and quality of life studies. These trials offer patients evidence-based care and the latest advances in treatment.
