New Unit brings total beds to 265

Algorithme Pharma is expanding its clinical facility in Montreal, Quebec, with a seventh clinical unit, for a total 265 beds. The open concept design has three independent lounges, soundproof dormitories and facility-wide WiFi, and aims to provide sponsors with increased flexibility and efficiency for conducting complex study designs requiring large panel sizes.
 
Ingrid Holmes, vice president Clinical Operations, Algorithme Pharma, commented, “In response to our sponsors’ early phase development needs, we’ve added 41 hospital beds to our existing footprint. The new clinic is a great addition to our existing facility. The flexibility in the open concept design allows for increasingly complex protocol functions to occur either in a common area or at the bedside. This design feature, coupled with the ability to perform studies requiring intensive safety monitoring, makes this a unique space. The clinic has been designed for safety, functionality and the comfort of our study participants, and will allow us to continue to increase our service offering in the early phase market.”
