At Northside Hospital, we never stop looking for ways to improve patient care. Research through clinical trials and studies are an important part of advancing patient care and measuring outcomes. Not only do Northside Hospital patients have access to clinical trials that treat disease, but they also have opportunities to participate in studies focusing on quality of life, symptom management, and other facets of the patient experience.
Through our dedicated Northside Hospital Research Program, we bring all the benefits of the latest medical research close to home. This means you get a rare combination of high-quality care and advanced clinical expertise - all delivered with a patient-focused approach within your community. A dedicated team of physicians, nurses, coordinators and other specialized staff help to coordinate all Northside Hospital research safely and effectively, and work with research patients every step of the way on a clinical trial.
Clinical research trials test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose or treat diseases. Each trial is carefully designed to test the effects of medicines, treatments or devices.
Our research team and physicians work alongside respected industry partners, academic institutions and nationally recognized clinical trial networks. In fact, Northside is a leading partner in the Georgia NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP). The Georgia NCORP offers access to innovative cancer prevention, screening, control, treatment and post-treatment trials, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, within the Northside communities.
