You’ll find the lovely town of Edgewater resting along the scenic Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon, and neighbor to quaint and charming New Smyrna Beach. Within that delightful locale, you’ll also find Riverside Clinical Research, another enjoyable place to be. Let’s take a tour, shall we? Along the way, we’re sure you will discover that the comfort of our clinical research volunteers is paramount…
It all starts in our reception area located just off the Riverside Clinical Research entryway. Where visitors are welcomed by a professional and calming atmosphere – a comfortable place where Riverside Clinical Research volunteers can sit down, relax and fill out any paperwork that might be required.
Clean and pristine, the Riverside Clinical Research facility kitchen and dining area is state-of-the-art and equipped with everything our guests and staff could possibly need for an excellent dining experience during their time spent here.
When you think patient rooms, think comfort! Each Riverside Clinical Research extended stay patient room is furnished with one bed or more, a comfy chair, flat screen TV, a desk area, Wi-Fi and a nightstand and lockers to stow your belongings.
Don’t forget the entertainment because there is even a movie theater room at the Riverside Clinical Research facility! Decorated with a fun vibe, the Riverside Clinical Research movie theater room offers ultra-comfortable reclining couches, a huge screen for viewing a multitude of movie choices and is available for patients to enjoy during their clinical trials.
Speaking of fun vibes, even the men’s room at Riverside Clinical Research has them! Garage-themed with rivets and road signs, as well as clean private stalls, our men’s restroom promotes comfort and relaxation. The women’s restroom, adorned with an upbeat wall-to-wall mural is clean, bright and vibrant and offers private stalls, multiple handwashing sinks and even a lounge area.
Ok, let’s switch gears and get serious for a moment because along with the comfort of our clinical trial volunteers it is imperative to Riverside Clinical Research that we treat our patients with compassion and ensure their privacy and security. Our patient recruitment area, where friendly, professional Riverside Clinical Research staff members collect personal patient data in a private, controlled setting, is that place.
We analyze and safely conduct our clinical research in a sterile, high-tech laboratory. Within these walls, the medical and research professionals at Riverside Clinical Research are held to the highest standards and protocols and our patients are always made to feel at ease. Throughout our clinical trials, patients are closely monitored by highly qualified physicians using modern advancements and equipment.
Finally, Riverside Clinical Research also provides a presentation area on our first floor. Used for presentations including orientations, meetings, seminars and patient education, this room is outfitted with ample seating and table space for conferences, additional side seating, a large projection screen and a copy machine.
Riverside Clinical Research is conveniently located at 1410 Ridgewood Avenue, nearby everything else that could possibly make your experience as a clinical trial volunteer even nicer and more convenient. There are five airports located close by, including Orlando International Airport, Daytona Beach Airport, Orlando Sanford International Airport in Sanford, Melbourne International Airport and Massey Ranch Airport in Edgewater itself.
