The Yuma Regional Medical Center Clinical Research Program was established in 2013 and is committed to offering Yuma-area patients advanced cancer treatment options through cancer clinical trials, eliminating their need to travel and receive this care.
The YRMC Clinical Research Program is an integral part of the new, state-of-the-art Yuma Regional Cancer Center, which is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. Only eight hospitals in Arizona have been awarded this honor, and YRMC is the only hospital in the state outside of Phoenix to receive this prestigious accreditation.
The first two clinical trials to be offered by YRMC in the field of oncology will be (1) an advanced breast cancer trial using genetic information to determine treatment and (2) a supportive care trial designed to test the effectiveness of a new treatment for depression in cancer patients. In the future, YRMC will offer clinical trials in other medical disciplines.
