Prairie Education and Research Cooperative (P.E.R.C.)
Founded in 1983, Prairie Education and Research Cooperative is a not for profit organization that focuses on medical education and research in an effort to improve our overall healthcare environment. By participating in research, both locally and non-locally, we are improving treatments and discovering better technologies that will improve the quality of life for those in our community and beyond. Our participation includes our involvement in current clinical trials (Local Site), developing protocols and providing data management for current and future trials (MultiCenter), doing outcomes research, as well as wound and angiographic analysis (SynvaCor). In addition, PERC provides continuing medical education (CME) opportunities to our health care professionals so that they are kept abreast of these treatments and technologies and are well educated and qualified to care for their patients; one such opportunity is the Prairie Vascular Fellowship. PERC is an affiliate of Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) and closely aligned with Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants Ltd. For more information please contact 217-492-9100.
