Up to 75% of people living with Hep C don't even know they have it. Thankfully, Hep C is curable, and 93% of our patients achieve a sustained virologic response (SVR) – effectively curing them of the disease. But, if left untreated, it can cause liver damage, liver cancer, or death.

As a Hepatitis C Center of Excellence, Trillium Health is expertly staffed to treat infected patients – including board-certified infectious disease physicians, pharmacists, and coordinators who can get you from diagnosis to cure.
To help deliver comprehensive care to all of our patients, Trillium Health employs a bilingual staff and a full-time onsite Spanish interpreter. We also provide integrated harm reduction services, including medication-assisted treatment (Suboxone for opioid dependence).
While some individuals are at a higher risk for Hep C, the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for Hep C infection in adults aged 18 to 79 years.
Individuals at the highest risk for Hep C infection:
Were born between 1945-1965
Had a blood transfusion before 1992
Have injected or snorted drugs
Have been incarcerated
Are living with HIV
Received a tattoo or piercing in an unlicensed setting
Are on hemodialysis
Have multiple sexual partners
Engage in receptive anal sex
Have been diagnosed with an STD in the last year
Are on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
Are of the trans-feminine experience
Each year, more people are dying from Hep C than from other reportable infectious diseases (including HIV).
Adhering to medications is essential to be cured of the virus. There is always a risk of reinfection if an individual continues to engage in risk factors such as injecting drugs, sharing cocaine straws, or engaging in high-risk sexual behaviors.
