Pittsburgh is our original Clinic. It has 125 beds in 4 clinics. Located in the heart of the city, we are within walking distance of two major medical centers. This provides us access to an experienced pool of medical staff. Pittsburgh's five universities provide access to a large population of young volunteers. In addition, Pittsburgh's growing older population gives us a pool of potential participants for specialized studies.
Houston houses our largest clinic. It currently has 225 beds in 6 clinics. Fully staffed with an experienced team of professionals, it can handle the most complicated of studies. Houston, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, provides us with a very large and ethnically diverse population from which to recruit. Novum is the only Phase I clinic in the Houston area. Located on the outer SW expressway, we are easily accessible by both car and public transportation.
Las Vegas is our newest clinic. It currently has 200 beds spread across 6 clinics. Opened in 2004, its modern facilities combined with Novum’s longstanding experience provide the perfect mixture for a successful study. Las Vegas is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country. Our clinic is located three miles from the University of Las Vegas and four miles from the Las Vegas strip.
