Western New York BloodCare is committed to compassionately caring for patients, their families and our unique community. In addition to providing state-of-the-art medical care, we are proud to offer a vast range of supportive programs and services. Western New York BloodCare has a foundation (the HCWNY Foundation) that is a Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation.
This is also referred to as Chapter Services.
There are numerous opportunities throughout the year for patients and their families to connect with each other, helping to build a strong sense of community, support, friendship, and fun. Chapter Services hosts many social events where members of the bleeding disorders community can come together. Annual seasonal and holiday parties are only a few examples of events where patients and families can network, share stories and learn that they are not alone. In addition to family-friendly events held at local venues, we also works closely with specialized medical summer camps where kids with bleeding disorders can join together and have safe fun.
Furthermore, we believe information is power. In order to empower patients and families, the Chapter Services provides many educational programs throughout the year. We invite experts to present a wide variety of innovative topics to our local patient community—offering current medical education, as well as sessions that address important issues such as medical insurance, stress management and overall health and wellness.
