Welcome to the Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center.
The IHTC was established in 1998 by Amy D. Shapiro, M.D., the center's co-medical director and pediatric hematologist, and Anne Greist, M.D., the center's co-medical director and adult hematologist. The center is located at the St. Vincent Hospital campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. Patient care, research and education are the focus of the center. Yet at the heart of all we do is patient care, as our mission statement indicates:
The Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center Inc. is committed to providing the highest quality comprehensive healthcare services to patients with bleeding and clotting disorders, and to their families.
