Memphis, Tennessee, United States
Phone   Web  

The Diggs-Kraus Sickle Cell Center at Regional One Health has cared for more than 51,000 sickle cell patients. Medical procedures developed here have been adopted nationwide. The mission of the Diggs-Kraus Sickle Cell Center (SCC) is to provide primary outpatient medical care to SCD patients in a holistic way that is sensitive to the pressures that this catastrophic disease brings to bear on patients and their families.

The center offers regular preventative and maintenance care which includes routine lab work at least twice a year, an annual eye exam, immunizations, and general health and nutritional information. Each program is designed around the individual patient and may include specialists from several areas.

With the multi-disciplinary approach, fewer patients face medical crisis. The process is designed to get patients back on their feet and to prevent as many crises as possible
