Adult Hematology Program

Resides within Froedtert Clinical Cancer Center, in Wisconsin is part of its Division of Hematology/Oncology.

Versiti's adult hematology program, which resides within Froedtert Clinical Cancer Center, is part of its Division of Hematology/Oncology. Our pediatric hematology program resides within Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin clinics. The comprehensive bleeding and clotting program resides within Versiti but patients are seen in Children’s Hospital and in Froedtert Hospital. Our physicians bring expert care to patients with anemia, platelet and white cell disorders, bleeding and clotting disorders.

The Adult Benign Hematology Service is a partnership of BloodCenter of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital, and the Medical College of Wisconsin. This partnership has created the infrastructure for a clinical home in which to carry out coordinated short-term and long-term care for patients with benign hematologic disorders.

The goals of the program are:

  • Create a premier adult Benign Hematology Service, including sickle cell disease, for clinical care, translational research, and education
  • Provide clinical care and a consultative service to the adult academic medical center
  • Improve adult practice hematology training for hematology/oncology fellows
  • Enhance collaboration among BloodCenter of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital, and the Medical College of Wisconsin clinical and research programs
  • Build community infrastructure to support clinical services, research and outreach.

BloodCenter physicians, through the Medical Sciences Institute, work closely with our Hemostasis Reference Laboratory, Immunohematology Reference Laboratory, and Platelet and Neutrophil Immunology Laboratory to coordinate care for our clients' patients. This coordination is often critical to maintenance of the highest level of patient care.

  • Adult sickle cell disease patients are cared for in the Sickle Cell Disease Clinic at Froedtert Hospital and Clinics. Pediatric patients with sickle cell disease are also cared for in a comprehensive program in collaboration with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
