Coumadin is an oral anticoagulant (commonly referred to as “bloodthinner”) that is currently used in cardiology and other field of medicine, to prevent or treat thromboembolic events (improper blood flow, clotting and its effects).
For patients who take coumadin, St. Francis Hospital & Health Services offers a special clinic to help manage coumadin dosage and monitor the blood’s clotting ability. We offer a blood test to ensure that the dosage is correct and that the blood is neither too ‘thin’ or too ‘thick’ as well as valuable education about diet and safety tips while on the drug.
The Coumadin Clinic is located at St. Francis Hospital & Health Services at 2016 S Main, near the old hospital's lobby.
Hours are Monday 7:30- 11:30 a.m. and 1:00- 4:30 p.m., Tuesday 1:00- 4:30 p.m., Wednesday 7:30- 11:30 a.m. and 1:00- 4:30 p.m. and Thursday 7:30- 11:30 a.m. To make an appointment, please call (660) 562-7989.
