Mercy Anticoagulation Management Service


Anticoagulants are medicines that treat clots in the legs, arms, and/or lungs and prevent clots arising from conditions including irregular heart rhythms, circulation problems (peripheral vascular disease, severe heart failure, cardiomyopathy, or coronary heart disease), heart valve replacement or repair, or clotting strokes. Many factors, including diet or other medications, can interfere with the effectiveness of anticoagulants, which is why the Anticoagulation (Coumadin) Management Service at Mercy Regional Medical Center has a focused approach on coordinating care.

The clinic offers on-site laboratory services, enabling patients to receive vital test results in minutes. Clinical pharmacists provide education on specific health conditions, information about medications, and symptom management solutions. They evaluate medication dosages, compliance, and address any concerns a patient may have. The goal of the Anticoagulation Clinic is to maintain safe and therapeutic medication levels for each patient. Care is closely coordinated with the referring provider and any other providers involved in the patient’s care.

A physician referral is required. For more information, call (440) 960-3420.
