United Hospital participates in studies and clinical trials with a variety of research sponsors, universities and pharmaceutical companies. Treatment studies through our research programs include innovative new surgical techniques, radiation therapy and chemotherapy drugs. Also being studied are emerging treatments such as immune therapy.
