A Hemophilia Treatment Center of Excellence

BCDI is the only federally funded Hemophilia Treatment Center of Excellence south of Chicago. We draw patients from 15 states from physician, hospital and self-referrals throughout the "downstate" Illinois area.

People with bleeding disorders have found comfort at their Hemophilia Treatment Center for many years. Our team not only delivers state-of-the art medical care, but also offers tremendous emotional support to patients and families.


Dr. Tarantino Pedals for Platelets!

Dr. Tarantino will be participating in El Tour de Tucson, a 104 mile premier cycling event in Arizona, to raise awareness for Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) and other rare platelet disorders! Dr. Tarantino will be Pedaling for Platelets, and all money raised will go directly to the Platelet Disorder Support Association (PDSA). Dr. Tarantino has been a Medical Advisor for PDSA for over a decade, and he has cared for many hundreds of persons with ITP over the last 30 years.

Please help Dr. Tarantino give to the ITP community by donating whatever you can! The more people that know about ITP and other platelet disorders, the greater their impact. Please also spread the word to your friends and family.

Thank you for your generosity!
