HHT Treatment Centers
HHT centers proactively manage the care of patients with HHT with an integrated team of experts, knowledgeable about HHT. HHT specialists work closely with an HHT coordinator to ensure proper follow-up and coordination of patients care throughout the center.
Each HHT center combine strengths of each specialty to treat the unique symptoms of HHT. You will have access to physicians who specialize in all aspects of HHT.
Cure HHT strongly encourages HHT centers to:
- Educate patients, families, and health care providers about HHT.
- Interact with the non-COE health care providers of HHT patients.
- Engage in HHT research and publish results in medical journals and publications.
- Participate in Cure HHT activities.
Cure HHT currently partners with 27 HHT Treatment Centers of Excellence (COE) in North America. Although Cure HHT and the Cure HHT COE are completely separate entities, we have established a collaborative relationship that encourages advancements in the diagnosis, treatment and management of HHT that benefits all individuals affected by this disorder. COE certified after January 2017 have been certified by Cure HHT to meet the 2017 Criteria for a North American Cure HHT Center of Excellence. COE certified before January 2017 have been certified by Cure HHT to meet the 2008 Criteria for a North American Cure HHT Center of Excellence and will undergo recertification between 2018 and 2022.
Cure HHT does not currently have the resources to review and visit International Treatment Centers outside of North America. However, we are happy to list International Centers on our website and encourage them to follow the 2017 Criteria for a North American Cure HHT Center of Excellence when possible within their health care system.
