The Triangle area of North Carolina represents the intersection of three cities – Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill – and three major research universities – the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University and North Carolina State University. Research Triangle Park is at the center of the Triangle area, which is home to more than 2,000,000 people. Entrepreneurial startup, small and midsize biotechs energize the Triangle. Large biopharma companies have substantial research and manufacturing operations here. In short, the life sciences in the Triangle area are flourishing.

One of the most vibrant elements of the Triangle life-sciences scene is an abundance of CROs – Contract Research Organizations like Health Decisions. CROs of all sizes thrive here, providing biopharma, diagnostics and medical-device companies with a wide range of choices for outsourcing their clinical projects. Thus, it is a high honor when an independent Triangle business publication recognizes your organization as Best CRO in its annual Life Sciences Awards.

We are delighted that Triangle Business Journal has honored Health Decisions as Best CRO in its annual Life Sciences Awards for 2015. Health Decisions was pleased to accept the award at a luncheon May 21 in Cary, North Carolina.

We are grateful for recognition of Health Decisions’ accomplishments to date. However, we view this award as a springboard. It will serve as inspiration to improve service delivery to our current clients and to expand and refine the clinical-development services that we provide for biopharma, diagnostics and medical-device companies worldwide.
