Clinical Research at Reading Hospital gives patients access to cutting-edge treatments without needing to travel far from home.

Because of our dedication to clinical research and affiliations with various national organizations, we are able to provide patients in our community with the opportunity to participate in the same research studies being offered at large university hospitals throughout the nation.

From Our Leadership

"Clinical Research is very important to the Reading Hospital and the communities we serve. Not only do we add to the body of knowledge that benefits medical research and future generations but participation may help individuals through improved disease outcomes and better health. Clinical Research also adds insight into parallel and/or subsequent studies. The health system feels so strongly about the benefits of clinical research, it is a core component of the organization’s mission.”  -
