Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

St. Joseph’s Hospital Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders is one of approximately 140 federally funded centers in the U.S. Statistics have shown that care provided by federally-funded hemophilia treatment centers reduces morbidity and mortality in patients with bleeding disorders.  Our comprehensive team of specialists diagnose and treat a variety of bleeding and clotting disorders in infants, children, adolescents and adults.

Because we are a federally funded center, we can offer a 340B program to our patients, allowing them to get medications at a reduced cost. We are also active in industry-sponsored trials and belong to the American Thrombosis/Hemostasis Network (ATHN), a national initiative to study and improve the care of patients with bleeding and clotting disorders.

We regularly participate in clinical trials to find the most effective and safest treatment options for our patients. Learn more.
