Site Profile

River City Clinical Research
Visit The Site’s Website

River City Clinical Research is located in the heart of downtown Jacksonville along the riverbank. The center is housed in a large medical complex surrounded by one of the largest hospitals in Jacksonville, Baptist Medical Center-Downtown. The RCCR site was established due to the strength and ability of the surgeons and hospitalists to work in harmony with the hospital departments and staff. The team at RCCR now has the ability to conduct both inpatient and outpatient trials in partnership with the physicians housed within the medical complex. RCCR nurse coordinators also conduct clinical trials at Memorial Hospital Jacksonville on the Southside of Jacksonville.
