Why come to the Hemophilia Treatment Center?

Research demonstrates that people with bleeding disorders who receive regular comprehensive care at a hemophilia treatment center significantly reduce their risk of serious complications and death due to their illness. Although most of our patients come from Maryland and the surrounding areas, we welcome all new patient inquires. As a patient at the Johns Hopkins Hemophilia Treatment Center, you will be able to attend an annual comprehensive Hemophilia Treatment Center clinic appointment that includes coordinated clinical care by a certified nurse practitioner, a medical exam by a hematologist, a psychosocial consultation with a clinical social worker and consultation by a physical therapist, if needed. We also arrange coordinated care with your primary care provider or other providers and specialists as needed.
