Rochester Clinical Research is located in the easily accessible lower level of The Laurelton, a medical and professional office building that houses practices in rheumatology, dermatology, obstetrics, gynecology and midwifery, pediatrics, psychiatry, women’s continence and chiropractic/alternative medicine.
All areas and building entrances are ADA-compliant. Car parking is more than adequate, with handicapped parking near the front door.
Rochester Clinical Research’s 10,000 square foot facility includes eight examination rooms, four dedicated monitor offices, two large conference rooms, an overnight facility for two subjects, and on-site, long-term storage for record archives.
RCR has temperature controlled and monitored secure drug rooms, two minus 70° freezers, three minus 20° freezers, two dedicated vaccine refrigerators, a cold centrifuge, a regular centrifuge, a stadiometer, a spirometer, and EKG.
The temperatures of the refrigerator, the freezer and the drug rooms are monitored and recorded at all times. An automatic generator powered backup system provides emergency power for the freezers and refrigerator. Comprehensive medical imaging and endoscopy facilities are available nearby.
On-site emergency equipment includes an AED, oxygen, airways, an Ambu Bag, IV fluids, epinephrine and IV Benadryl. Rochester General Hospital is only 1.2 miles from the RCR facility.
RCR uses the Clinical Conductor clinical trial management system for managing the recruitment and progress of clinical trial volunteers through each trial. Now used at over 1,200 sites worldwide, the software was originally developed in collaboration with Rochester Clinical Research to meet our recruitment needs. Our CTMS database contains well over 35,000 patients and continues to grow.
Rochester Clinical Research is affiliated with the Rheumatology Associates of Rochester, which is located in the same building. Dr. Tammi Shlotzhauer, a partner in that practice, is the Assistant Medical Director at Rochester Clinical Research. That practice has over 10,000 reachable patients, in addition to those in the RCR database.
