About the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center

The Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center (HTC) at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia provides comprehensive care to children and adolescents with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders. The center also treats children with blood clots (thrombosis) or who are at increased risk for blood clots (thrombophilia).

At CHOP, our multidisciplinary team works to ensure that patients with inherited bleeding or clotting disorders and their families have access to appropriate hematologic, genetic, and other medical expertise. Our medical home model provides family-centered, culturally competent and quality comprehensive care.

Education, counseling and testing

From the time of diagnosis, our team works with your child and family to provide appropriate education, counseling and testing. We also help develop an individualized care plan that meets your entire family’s needs.

Communication is a critical part of the delivery of safe and effective care at the HTC at CHOP. We encourage you to ask questions and provide feedback. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with any acute issues your child may develop.

Collaboration at a national level

The HTC at CHOP is a part of the national network of federally funded HTCs in the U.S. and serves as the core center for the 16 HTCs in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Each facility in the collaborative provides cares for patients with inherited bleeding and clotting disorders.

Together, we have successfully collaborated in the evaluation and implementation of expert services and serve as a national resource on bleeding and clotting disorders.
