Dr. Newton K. Wesley Research Center

Participate in pioneering research.


Built in collaboration with the Dr. Newton K. Wesley Foundation, this center will serve as a dedicated research space. It will be the base for all research participants involved in current studies. The center will house specialty research rooms and a modular center that changes based on research needs. A larger space will triple the size of our current research suite to meet all of our growing research needs.


The Dr. Newton K. Wesley Research Center is currently under construction and should conclude by late fall. We anticipate occupancy by the end of the calendar year. The result will be a new State-of-the-Art Clinical Research Center to serve our institution and the profession for years to come.
