Meridian Opens Dakota Dunes Location

DAKOTA DUNES – Omaha-based Meridian Clinical Research, LLC opened an independent research site in Dakota Dunes in August.

Meridian, a group of medical professionals dedicated to the advancement of clinical research, was founded 12 years ago.

The 2,000 square-foot Dakota Dunes office, 330 Dakota Dunes Boulevard Suite 400, is the group’s second research site and employs five people.

 “We’re just essentially set up like a doctor’s office,” Director Amy Workman said. “We have exam rooms and a lab.”
