Research Trials of America Opens Brand New, State-of-the-Art 10,000 Sq. Ft. Facility in Holywood, FL to Service all of South Florida

There are an endless amount of benefits to being involved in clinical trials, which are the key step in developing new medical drugs and procedures. Throughout the country, there are many companies that specialize in clinical research, but throughout the years our team at Research Centers of America (RCA) has dedicated ourselves to being truly exceptional. We are an independently owned and operated research company offering clinical trials in Broward County and surrounding areas.

We are interested in finding and choosing the most qualified candidates to participate in our clinical studies, because we know this gives us the most accurate results and may offer different and better options to other patients like you in the future. If you have lost hope in finding a workable medicine for your condition or disease, you may have an opportunity to help not only yourself, but also others with the same ailment. The clinical trials we conduct at RCA provide pharmaceutical companies with valid and useful data to help determine if a new medication may be a better treatment option in the future..

Outpatient Trial Participation

Our outpatient facility provides comprehensive care programs, completely equipped with private exam areas, EKG equipment, laboratory area for blood work and processing samples, and any necessary equipment to successfully support and conduct clinical studies. Our knowledgeable staff maintains a high caliber of patient care, and aims to exceed expectations. Our team of Master’s and Doctorate Level clinicians first meet with you to discuss research participation opportunities, determine if participation is appropriate and in your best interest at this time, and answer any questions related to the research process. In our outpatient facility, you will come to our clinic for your appointment and return at your next scheduled visit. This may be several times a week, once a week, every other week, or even monthly. Your visits can last from one hour to several hours on-site. Your schedule of appointments will be provided and discussed to ensure you set-aside time to complete each visit in its entirety.

Inpatient Trial Participation

If you have been considering participation in one of our inpatient studies, we encourage all potential volunteers to fully inform themselves of the entire process before making any important decisions regarding their health. If you decide to participate, you will receive specific instructions on what you will need for your stay at our inpatient facility. Our inpatient unit is located at Broward Health Imperial Point on the behavioral health unit. This is a locked unit and RCA physicians make rounds daily. Our team of staff will meet with you to determine if you qualify for an inpatient trial prior to admission. This allows RCA to gather all the necessary information, paperwork, and documentation needed to have a direct admission to the unit once deemed qualified. RCA has dedicated research beds on the unit, offices and exam rooms, lab area, and on-site staff. If participating in an inpatient trial, you will be encouraged to attend daily groups and activities conducted on the unit when not completing research related assessments or procedures.

When you come into our research facility for any type of clinical trial, you will quickly learn that we are truly dedicated to ensuring every step of your experience is positive. At Research Centers of America (RCA), patient care is our top priority, from your initial consultation and qualification screening, to ensuring you understand the ins and outs of the upcoming study, and making sure you are comfortable throughout the research process. We are committed to adhering research guidelines, recruiting the appropriate participants, and collecting quality data to make a positive impact on new treatments to help others like you.

Our areas of expertise are as follows:
