Clinical Trials & Research
Mercy Health is committed to improving the care of our patients. International and national clinical trials play a major role in offering patients cutting-edge technology. All of today’s successful medical treatments are based on the results of clinical trials completed in the past.
Benefits of clinical trials at Mercy Health:
- Participants may receive a new type of medicine or device that is only available to patients who join the trial or receive standard medicine or device for his/her disease.
- Research staff, as well as the patient’s routine doctors and nurses, will be closely monitoring progress.
- The patient will receive state-of-the-art care right here where he/she lives.
- Change a life! Even if there is not a direct medical benefit to you, your participation in a clinical trial may give the doctors more information to help treat or cure your disease in the future.
