Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services has completed several upgrades at its Las Vegas, Nevada clinical facility, which opened in 2004.

The Pittsburgh PA-headquartered contract research organization (CRO) previously expanded at its Houston, TX-based facility and its acquisition of a clinic unit in Fargo, ND in 2013.

According to the CRO, the investment includes refurbished study clinics, screening areas, and outpatient returns at the 196-bed, 34,000 square foot facility. Additionally, the company has added a new administrative wing adjacent to the clinic.

The facility was opened in Las Vegas in 2004, since which time Novum has paid more than $20m to residents for clinical trial participation. More than 100 staff members are employed at the location.

Over the last several years Novum has adapted to the ever-evolving pharma landscape​,” Andrea Atencio, marketing coordinator at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services told us.

With a modernized facility, we can continue to foster a positive environment for our study participants, and ensure successful recruitment for a wide variety of studies.​”

The multi-year expansion and upgrade includes a remodel of screening department to “improve efficiency while making the screening process more ‘participant friendly​,’” added Atencio.
