Clinical trials at Holy Family Memorial

At HFM, we’re committed to providing the right care. Sometimes our methods are tried and true. Other times, like with clinical trials, we leverage the power of innovation in modern medicine to provide our patients with the latest treatment options available—right here in our community. Volunteer-based clinical trials help us research and evaluate new treatments to see if they improve upon current standards of care.

Carefully conducted clinical trials are the quickest and safest way to find better treatments, provide hope and improve our patients’ lives. We’re proud to offer clinical trial options for cancer care, cardiology and rheumatology. If you’re dealing with cancer, a cardiac issue or a rheumatic disease like arthritis, we encourage you to explore the range of clinical trials available at Holy Family Memorial.

Clinical trials—cancer care

We offer hope every day through our nationally recognized cancer care. And part of that care includes our partnership with HSHS St. Vincent Hospital. Through the St. Vincent Cancer Collaborative, you get a direct link to one of the nation’s leading cancer research facilities, along with access to top cancer specialists and advanced treatment options, including a variety of adult and pediatric clinical trials.

With more than 30 years of experience conducting more than 700 different clinical trials, HSHS St. Vincent Hospital plays an integral role in finding breakthrough discoveries in the treatment of cancer, and we’re proud to be their partner. Because we’re stronger together in the fight against cancer.
