What We Are Doing:

Anticoagulation Therapy is complex. Our Pharmacists are knowledgeable and well-trained, so we consider them to be a valuable resource in managing your anti-coagulation therapy. Working with doctors, they are authorized to make changes in medications to keep your blood at a level that is perfect for you.

Our Region has outpatient anti-coagulation clinics that follow the same anti-coagulation safety principles used in the hospital. Guided by physicians and pharmacists, specially trained nurses continue the individual attention needed to track and care for each patient who is on anti-coagulation therapy.
