New clinic to treat sickle cell patients

University of Missouri Health Care is opening a new clinic to treat patients with sickle cell disease.  The clinic will be open the second and fourth Thursdays of every month.

Sickle cell is a genetic disease where red blood cells are in short supply.  According to Children’s Mercy Hospital, most of the treatment centers are aimed toward children. Elizabeth Gunier, a sickle cell coordinator at Women's and Children's Hospital's blood disorder and cancer unit, says the new clinic is specifically for adults.


A Columbia hospital says it will close its adult intensive care unit next month because it is not being used enough.
