Lake Regional’s Anticoagulation Clinic is located in the Specialty Suite on the second floor of Lake Regional Hospital at 54 Hospital Drive; Osage Beach, Mo. For more information, call 573-302-3310. Open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
The clinic provides expert, coordinated care for adult patients who require short- or long-term anticoagulation medication, such as Warfarin (Coumadin), Heparin, Fragmin or Lovenox. To help manage their condition, patients will receive individualized care, flexible scheduling, access to a pharmacist and formal teaching about anticoagulation therapy.
The clinic’s purpose is to help patients on anticoagulation medication reach and maintain healthy INR or anti-Xa levels. Clinic staff helps stabilize patients on one dose and helps them understand the purpose of anticoagulation therapy. By building strong relationships and educating our patients, we can help them avoid additional medical problems associated with anticoagulation medications.
Anticoagulation services require a referral from your primary care or managed care provider. The clinic will coordinate care with the referring physicians. We address your results, expectations and plan of care during each visit.
Patients may now preregister online. This allows patients to go directly to the clinic without stopping at the registration desk. To schedule clinic visits and testing by phone, call 573-302-3310.
