Hematology

Hematology itself is the study of blood and the blood-forming tissue and organs, such as bone marrow and the spleen.

Your blood can speak volumes

Hematology at St. Vincent’s is a subspecialty of internal medicine and extends its clinical services and physician expertise to St. Vincent’s cancer care and other areas of care.

One Simple Test

By the time we are adults, most of us have at one time or another have had blood tests to determine the status of our general health, simply because this vital fluid reveals so much of what is going on in the body. A simple test for cholesterol can reveal our risk for heart disease, while a complete blood count, or CBC test, can be critical in diagnosing a serious anemia or infectious disease.

Life-Saving Results

At St. Vincent’s, our skilled physicians, cardiologists and oncologists draw on the information yielded in such tests, as well as on other diagnostic measures, to determine and implement the best treatment for a vast number of conditions and diseases. These can range from coronary artery disease, thyroid disease, diabetes and other autoimmune and metabolic diseases, to lymphoma and various other threats to our health.
