Note: We are now located in the Shaner Cancer Pavilion.
The Mount Nittany Medical Center Pharmacy operates a state-of-the-art anticoagulation clinic here in the Centre region.
Currently located in Mount Nittany Medical Center's Lance and Ellen Shaner Cancer Pavilion, our pharmacists work in conjunction with your physician to monitor and manage your anticoagulation therapy.
All of our pharmacists are trained in anticoagulation management, so they can provide our patients the individualized care that anticoagulant therapy requires.
Our anticoagulation clinic operates instruments that require only a fingerstick of blood to measure your PT/INR. Lab results are obtained immediately.
Patient management is a "one stop" procedure: patients receive their results, dosing instruction, prescription refill and follow up visit appointment all at the same time, all within minutes.
