Residents of Northeast Connecticut and surrounding areas who need to take anti-coagulation medicines (also known as "blood thinners") can now receive monitoring and management care in Putnam as well as Plainfield. Day Kimball Healthcare's Anti-Coagulation Clinic, formerly only available at the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Plainfield, is now also available at the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Putnam, located at 12 South Main Street, Putnam, CT. Patients requiring this service can now choose either the Plainfield or the Putnam location.
The Anti-Coagulation Clinics, in conjunction with primary care practitioners (PCP), serve to monitor and manage anticoagulation medications, also known as “blood thinners,” which are prescribed for a variety of heart conditions to prevent blood clots. The Anti-Coagulation Clinics offer finger-stick blood sampling (INR blood test) instead of venous needle stick and provide results and dosing instructions immediately during the visit.
Appointments at the Anti-Coagulation Clinics require a referral from a PCP. Once that is received, a nurse will call to schedule the first appointment. More information is available at daykimball.org/anticoagulation.
