Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center has opened a new hepatitis C clinic on the first floor of its Camden location, a move that will offer testing and treatment to patients with all phases of the infection.

The clinic will work with an in-hospital pharmacy to offer a multidisciplinary model that cares for patients through a medical management treatment plan.

At the clinic, pharmacists support patients adhere to their medication schedule and help them identify cost resources – two challenges that many hepatitis C patients face. Patients can also choose where they pick up medication.

“Our message to patients and the community is that testing is crucial, because treatment is available and this often-fatal disease can be cured,” said Hisham ElGeniadi, MD, medical director of hepatology at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center. “To all baby boomers, and those at risk, please get screened. We want you to know we are here to help.”
