Through Recognized and Respected Research

Advancing patient care through cutting-edge, patient-focused research: That’s our mission at the Dr. Kiran C. Patel Research Institute where we oversee dozens of research studies every year across many clinical disciplines. While the program is housed at the AdventHealth Pepin Heart Institute, formerly Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Institute, research takes place throughout our 40+ hospitals in the AdventHealth System. Finding tomorrow’s breakthrough medical treatments and advancements starts with today’s research.

By Keeping You First

To protect the welfare of participating patients, the institute's research program is directed by a board of stakeholders whose job is to ensure the integrity, ethics and safety of our clinical trials and research studies.

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is made up of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, scientists, ethicists, and local community members, guided by the standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Good Clinical Practice and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) Guideline.

With Access to Clinical Trials

An influential business leader once said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Getting care at AdventHealth Pepin Heart Institute, formerly Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Institute, means getting access to the latest heart care research studies, procedures, and technologies including access to heart treatment clinical trials that aren’t widely available.
