Hemophilia Treatment Centers

People with bleeding disorders need access to specialists at the appropriate site of care whether in the hospital, outpatient clinic, office of the physician, in the home setting or at a hemophilia treatment center. HTC’s are federally recognized medical entities that offer comprehensive, multi-disciplinary services in a single setting and have been shown through research at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to improve quality and reduce morbidity and mortality of individuals living with bleeding disorders. Allowing access to comprehensive care centers such as these, ensures that a balance of care is provided to the patient by medical professionals.

Each HTC Provides access to multidisciplinary health care professionals including:

  • Hematologists
  • Orthopedists
  • Physical Therapist
  • Nurses
  • Social Workers
  • Other specialist available by referral, (e.g., nutritionist, dentist, genetic counselor)
