Why Choose A Comprehensive Hemophilia Treatment Center?

  • HTCs are nationally recognized centers of excellence that provide comprehensive care to patients with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.
  • HTCs providers are experts in the treatment of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. The multidisciplinary care team consists of a hematologist, nurse, social worker and physical therapist. Other specialties include orthopedics, genetics, dentistry, infectious disease, and nutrition.

  • HTCs care for nearly 28,000 people with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other bleeding disorders
  • HTC patients have better outcomes; mortality rates are 40% lower in patients treated at an HTC than those who are not, despite the fact that more severe patients are usually seen in HTCs
  • HTC Patients are taught skills for self care; nearly 90% of severe hemophilia patients seen at HTCs self infuse their medicine.
  • HTCs provide clotting factor and other medications at reduced cost through a federal discount program.
