State of the art medical care
with a caring, family-centered approach
The University of Miami Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit treatment, evaluation and research center, serving people of South Florida and the Caribbean who have coagulation disorders. As the largest and only federally funded comprehensive hemophilia treatment center in the southeast region in terms of patients and medical staff, we are dedicated to providing the very best diagnostic, therapeutic, consultative and educational services for patients with blood disorders and patient’s families.
We also provide confidential testing, counseling and follow-up for HIV, HCV (hepatitis C virus) and other blood-borne viral infections.
Patient education is a primary focus
The University of Miami Hemophilia Treatment Center was begun in 1987. Since then, it has grown from six patients to over 450 children, adolescents and adults who are living with hemophilias, von Willebrand disease and other coagulation disorders. Patient and family education is a primary focus for the HTC staff, because we believe the best patient care results from cooperation between medical and psychosocial providers and a well-informed patient.
Our unique approach to care has contributed to establishing the center’s national prominence in bleeding disorder care. We are committed to providing a warm, caring environment for our families. Our team members stay in frequent contact with our families so that we ensure our patients receive the very best care.
HTC Dental Assistance Program The University of Miami Hemophilia Treatment Center Dental Assistance Program was developed in 2006 in collaboration with the Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida. This program was designed to provide medically necessary dental care for our bleeding disorder patients. The University of Miami dentists and oral surgeons are experts in treating children and adults with oral bleeding problems. The longevity and success of our Dental Assistance Program is a testament to the quality of care our patients receive. Annalise Guerra, MSW has been managing the program since 2014. The program entails an application and approval process. Patients accepted to the program must meet medical and financial criteria.
