If you take anticoagulant medications — also known as blood thinners — to prevent blood clots and reduce stroke risk, your doctor may refer you to the Betty Winter Anticoagulation Management Center at Emerson Hospital.
Here, a team of experts that includes specially trained nurses and pharmacists will closely manage and monitor your medication on an outpatient basis — and provide peace of mind. You can rely on us to:
- Provide ongoing assessment
- Review other medications you are taking to prevent drug interactions
- Monitor lab results
- Adjust medication dosages as necessary
- Answer any questions you may have
Common oral anticoagulant medications include warfarin (Coumadin), Heparin, dabigatran (Pradaxa), apixaban (Eliquis) and rivaroxaban (Xarelto).
Through our center, you also may have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials that could lead to better options for anticoagulation therapy in the future.
If you have any questions about insurance or financial issues, our administrative staff is here to help.
Thanks to a generous gift from Neil Rasmussen and Anna Winter Rasmussen, the Betty Winter Anticoagulation Management Center was named in memory of Mrs. Rasmussen’s mother.
The center is located on the second floor of the Emerson Center for Specialty Care
, 54 Baker Avenue Extension, Suite 202 in Concord. Free parking and a comfortable, private waiting room are available.
