Clinical Trials

What We Do

As a system, Dignity Health offers more than 1,000 active clinical trials and research protocols to patients in California, Nevada and Arizona.

Clinical research is critical to our collective ability to improve the quality of life for all persons, to mitigate the pain and suffering caused by illness and injury, and to further the healing ministry that is the basis for Dignity Health’s existence. 

Dignity Health Research Institute Arizona (DHRI AZ) is dedicated to ensuring that all research activities within our institutions are carried out in an atmosphere that complies with all relevant regulations, laws, policies, and procedures.  DHRI AZ provides centralized research administration services including contracting, budgeting, financial management, compliance, and Institutional Review Board (IRB) oversights for all Dignity Health research activity occurring across Arizona.
