New Taipei touts city's first hemophilia center

TAIPEI--Hemophilia patients in New Taipei now have access to better care since the city's first hemophilia center was opened earlier this year, Taipei Medical University-Shuang Ho Hospital said Wednesday.

The center provides consultation services and medical care for hemophiliacs in New Taipei as well as in Taipei, said Chao Tsu-yi, chief of the hospital's Department of Hematology Oncology.

Although the center was established earlier this year, the hospital did not publicize the opening because it was "trying to smooth out the operation," Chao said at a press conference.

Before the center was set up, hemophiliacs in New Taipei had to go to hospitals in Taipei City for treatment, Chao said.

"Traveling is especially inconvenient for injured hemophilia patients," he said, adding that they require injections of blood clotting agents immediately to help stop the bleeding after an injury.

A 31-year-old hemophiliac living in Xindian said that previously he had to travel one to two hours to seek medical attention, even when he was hurt in a car accident.
