VCU Massey Cancer Center


The Mary Washington Hospital

The Mary Washington Hospital (MWH) Research Department was established in 2004 with a primary focus on cardiology studies. In 2007, it broadened its scope to include oncology studies and the current oncology focus is thoracic surgical trials. They are staffed by an RN site manager and two RN research coordinators who are certified clinical research professionals. The Research Department partners with hospital departments across their healthcare system as needed by the studies. In November 2012, the office was relocated to a new, highly visible office space in the Mary Washington Hospital, adding greater access to the associates of the hospital and the community at large. The Research Department is continuing to expand as they prepare to offer services to other Centers of Excellence at Mary Washington Healthcare. The Mary Washington Hospital joined the Massey Clinical Research Affiliation Network in 2013.
