Hometown Urgent Care and Research is a highly experienced clinical research company where patient safety is our primary concern. Our reputation for excellence is built upon the contributions of our many patient volunteers which have allowed us to successfully complete over 125 clinical trials. Hometown Research is experienced in multiple therapeutic areas, including Gastroenterology, Respiratory, Pain Management, Family Medicine, infectious disease and acute conditions such as ankle sprain. We conduct research trials from our urgent care centers located in major cities in southern Ohio. We draw patients from a robust research database, our urgent care database of over 374,000 patient names, and greater metropolitan populations of 2.3 million people (Columbus), 2.1 million (Cincinnati) and 1.1 million (Dayton). We have been audited by numerous sponsors for high enrollment, with no major findings, proof of our experienced, trained and involved investigators and staff. All of our Investigators have CITI GCP training. Our research coordinators average 10 years of experience, with a range of 3 to 22 years, and provide quality data with detailed source documents.
