The Comprehensive Bleeding Disorders Center (CBDC) was incorporated in 1996 as a nonprofit organization, established specifically to serve people with congenital bleeding disorders. Osvaldo H. Wesly, MD, serves as the Medical Director for CBDC. It is the longest standing center of its kind in Illinois outside of Chicago to have received federal grants.
The Center’s mission is to provide comprehensive care, outreach and other services to children and adults with blood clotting/bleeding disorders, their families and the communities in which they live. We strive to improve the quality of life for all affected by blood clotting disorders, increase awareness of and access to comprehensive care, and improve understanding and treatment of clotting disorders through state-of-the-art education, research and advocacy.
Comprehensive Bleeding Disorders Center is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. Since 1998, CBDC staff has provided a wide range of programs and services including blood clotting products, home infusion training, education, and outreach programs for patients and providers.
