Clinical Research Unit for Phase I Inpatient Studies
Backed by more than 25 years of experience in mental health, InSite Clinical Research has carried out numerous clinical research trials over more than a decade. Now, we are expanding to provide early-phase inpatient studies through the newest addition to our research program: Serenity. This Phase I research building is located close to the main office and includes two state-of-the-art Sleep Labs and 12 beds for early-phase studies.
The Clinical Research Unit is a newly built facility fully dedicated to clinical trials. It is located in a Medical Plaza surrounded by multi-specialty medical clinics in the south of the Dallas Metroplex, less than a quarter mile from Charlton Methodist Hospital emergency room. It is in close proximity to public transportation. It has Phase 1 capabilities with 12 beds available. We also have the flexibility to increase the number of beds up to 24, as needed.
Patients participating in inpatient studies enjoy spacious rooms equipped with cable television, DVD, and a synchronized clock. Home-cooked meals are provided, and there is a handicap-accessible, personal shower and bathroom in every room. You also have access to high-speed Internet capabilities, with computers available for use. Transportation is provided for research subjects, if needed.
For the safety of all participants, our inpatient facility is located less than a quarter mile from the Charlton Methodist Hospital emergency room. We have also contracted with a pharmacist to ensure compliance with protocol requirements, and contracted with a nutritionist to ensure all research subjects' dietary restrictions, requirements, and needs are met. Our facility is compliant with all OSHA and fire regulations, and the full-time and PRN staff are exceptionally trained. Staff-monitored CCTV protects all areas of the facility.
