CRG’s facility boasts over 10,000 square feet. It encompasses the state-of-the-art Research Facility, Chesapeake Ambulatory Surgery Center, Chesapeake Plastic Surgery Suite, and a Foot & Ankle Center. Our multiple treatment rooms and overnight capabilities (easily topping 15 subjects) help power robust enrollment numbers. From surgical studies, to PK studies, CRG is the most convenient research facility for both sponsors and patients.
CRG is proud to offer a newly renovated 6,000 square foot research facility. It contains 15 overnight patient rooms, dedicated monitor rooms, a conference room, a large clinical laboratory, two-room, temperature-controlled and video-monitored pharmacy, two large nurses stations, and a private research waiting area. The facility is completed with ample on-site storage for study supplies, a kitchen, offices for administrative staff and on-site laundry. Our offices are equipped with calibrated medical equipment for monitoring and safety along with wi-fi for both our patients and our pharmaceutical/CRO colleagues.
The Chesapeake Ambulatory Surgery Center is an office based ASC. It is used by the our staff surgeons to perform foot and ankle related surgeries. Located on the CRG campus, the center was formed in 1992. At the time, performing outpatient surgery in a non-hospital setting was not the norm and way ahead of today’s trends. Additionally, it provides our patients and research study participants affordable specialty care that is both safe and convenient. The sterile facility has virtually no occurrence of infections. In fact, ASC infection rates are much lower than hospital based cases both in number and severity.
The Chesapeake Plastic Surgery Suite is an office based ASC where our consultant plastic surgeons perform plastic surgery. We opened the center in 2015 to meet the needs of our ever expanding clinical trials. In addition to clinical trial cases, the plastic surgeons perform their private practice cases in the center as well.
Dr. Ira Gottlieb formed the Chesapeake Foot and Ankle Center in 1992. Then, in October 2011, our practice joined several other individual and group Podiatry practices to form Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic (known as FASMA). This allowed us to share centralized resources and better serve our patients. At the time, FASMA had 16 doctors and 11 locations in one state. Today, FASMA has 42 doctors in 24 locations across DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania , North Carolina and Virginia. Despite its rapid growth, our Pasadena, Maryland (http://www.footandankle-usa.com/provider/dr-ira-gottlieb/) location prides itself on providing a warm, caring and personal experience for our patients. We explain each and every patient’s condition to them in a clear manner. This invites cooperation, which in turn results in a rapid resolution of conditions and return to full function/recover
