Why Choose the Hemophilia and Blood Disorders Program at Children‘s Hospital

  • Exclusive care

    Our clinic is one of four federally funded Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTCs) in Tennessee, and the only center in Middle Tennessee. Our clinic is also part of a network of about 140 HTCs in the United States. National studies show that children treated at HTCs spend less time in the hospital and away from school, and have lower healthcare costs.

  • On-call support

    We offer access to a hematologist on call 24 hours a day, a nurse coordinator for phone consultation and a pharmacist with specialized expertise in bleeding disorders.

  • Access to clinical trials

    Patients have access to the latest therapies being studied in clinical trials, often before they are available in other hospitals.
