New regional thrombosis program receives $250,000 in funding

The Champlain LHIN has just announced it will be providing $250,000 in annual funding to support the new regional thrombosis program.

Patients all over the Champlain LHIN region will now have better access to medical expertise and the latest technology for clot related conditions. Through the creation of satellite thrombosis clinics in places like Montfort and Pembroke hospitals, cases of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism can be managed more effectively. This new model of care , lead by Dr. Marc Rodger, Chief of the Division of Hematology, is expected to save the health care system an estimated $2 million per year.
