For over 25 years, Chinese Hospital has been at the forefront of providing vital hepatitis B services, including vaccination, screening, treatment, linkage of care, and education to help prevent and manage this disease. Recently, Chinese Hospital announced the launch of its Hepatitis B Demonstration Project, which is aimed to increase awareness and access to care for individuals at risk and affected by Hepatitis B in our communities.

Screening

Chinese Hospital offers screening for people who are from hepatitis B prevalent areas such as Asia, Africa, Middle East and certain parts of South America. Pre-vaccination hepatitis B screening is encouraged, which includes hepatitis B surface antigen (HepBs Ag), surface antibody (HepBs Ab), and core antibody (HepBc Ab) serology tests.

Vaccination

Hepatitis B vaccinations are offered to those who are at risk of contracting the virus and currently not infected with the virus. This includes all newborns, people who may have been exposed to the virus, people who do not carry antibodies to protect against the virus, healthcare workers, people born to mothers who are infected with hepatitis B, people with multiple sex partners, and intravenous drug abusers.

Treatment 

Chinese Hospital also provides linkage of care to those who need treatment for a hepatitis B infection. Treatment may involve antiviral medications to slow the progression of the disease and prevent liver damage. Our clinic works closely with patients to develop a treatment plan that meets their individual needs.

Schedule an Appointment

If you believe you’re eligible for screening or have concerns regarding hepatitis B, please call 1-628-228-2828 to schedule an appointment with our clinic primary care providers. Many health plans, including Medicare, cover hepatitis B vaccinations without cost-sharing. Contact your health plan to learn more about your benefits.
