What We Do
Founded in 2010, Southwest Florida Research (SWFR) grew out of the clinical research division of the Southwest Institute for Cardiovascular Fitness and Treatment (SWICFT). The company is designed as a clinical research collaborative dedicated to partnering pharmaceutical companies with area physicians to find new cures to help patients better manage their healthcare. We share in the commitment and dedication to providing cutting edge therapy that can assist in managing patients’ chronic medical conditions today and for a lifetime.
In the clinical trials area, SWFR offers investigational therapies for indications such as Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes, and much more. We offer new and existing therapies that manage conditions where other medical therapies may have failed. Each and every patient at SWFR receives the highest quality medical care. We notify the patient’s primary care physician of enrollment and ongoing status and provide a full report at the conclusion of each study.
We are proud to have a number of sub-specialists, internists and others available to work with us on clinical trials in many other clinical areas including cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, internal medicine, and many others.
- Advance Science and ensure the protection and safety of all patients who choose to participate in our clinical trials.
- Ensure compliance with government regulations.
- Recognize the value of our client, subject, and employee partnerships.
- Exceed customer expectations through a combination of dedication, hard work and perseverance without compromise.
- Champion solutions through innovative thinking.
