Johnson Haynes, Jr., M.D., Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center
The Johnson Haynes, Jr., M.D., Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at the University of South Alabama provides consultation for the diagnosis, management, and treatment of children and adults with sickle cell disease.
Our mission is to improve the lives of persons affected by this disease through comprehensive clinical care, basic and clinical research, and patient and professional education, proving that there is: Life After Birth with Sickle Cell!
As a result of mandatory newborn screening, penicillin prophylaxis, and pneumococcal vaccines, the life expectancy of babies born with sickle cell disease in the United States has improved to the 4th and 5th decades of life. While the survival rate has improved, one third of adolescents and young adults delay or do not successfully transition to adult care and are lost to medical follow-up for the management of their sickle cell disease.
Many issues negatively affect the transitioning process, such as poor planning, ineffective patient-physician communication, cultural barriers, lack of access to healthcare providers and lack of adequate insurance coverage. Transitioning from pediatric to adult services has proven to be a challenge in the sickle cell community.
One of the innovative ways the center serves pediatric patients is through the Pediatric to Adult Care Transition (PACT) program. Established in 2012, this program was designed to promote and facilitate the transition of pediatric patients with sickle cell disease to adult services.
The goal of the PACT program is to establish a working relationship with adolescent patients starting at age 13 and their parent/caregiver to help pave the way for a more efficient and effective transition. The program incorporates preparation, education, and a multidisciplinary team approach to bridge the gap between pediatric and adult healthcare systems for sickle cell participants between the ages of 13-19.
Because a nurse practitioner and registered nurse work closely within both systems, this gives participants the advantage of already knowing members of the adult healthcare team, and as a result, they are more likely to progress in their care without incident.
The ideal result is to help patients better prepare for the transition with little to no complications. Ten years into the program, the center boasts an 82% successful transfer rate. Our hope is to continue to bridge the gap and make the process of transferring from pediatric to adult healthcare a smooth transition using our proven multidisciplinary approach.

Pediatric to Adult Care Transition (PACT)
The Pediatric to Adult Care Transition (PACT) Program at USA Health Johnson Haynes
Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center promotes and facilitates the transition of pediatric
patients with sickle cell disease to adult services. The goal of the PACT program
is to establish a working relationship with the adolescent patient starting at age
13 and the parent/caregiver to help pave the way for a more efficient and effective
Patients between the ages of 13 and 19 years, male and female, with sickle cell disease (SS, SC, Sβ+ - thalassemia and Sβ° - thalassemia) can be supported in this program. The transfer to adult services occurs at age 19.
Transitioning for an individual with a chronic illness is a dynamic process that requires a multidisciplinary approach. The PACT program incorporates preparation, education and a multi-disciplinary team approach to streamline the patient’s transition seamlessly. Some of the most significant barriers to transitioning from pediatric to adult care include: identifying a primary care physician; resistance from the adolescent or family; lack of time to address transition issues; and lack of reimbursement for providers.
The transition process affects both the parent and child, and the PACT program was established to support both through the adolescent’s continued care. Additional support from sickle cell centers and community agencies, such as the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, vocational rehabilitation and work readiness programs also helps meet medical, educational, psychosocial and vocational needs during transition.
The GBT HOPE (Hemoglobin Oxygen Affinity Modulation to Inhibit HbS PolymErization) study is a global clinical research study that will evaluate whether GBT440 will be safe and effective in reducing anemia, pain crises, fatigue and other day-to-day symptoms in adults and adolescents with sickle cell disease. It will also study the effects of different doses of GBT440 to determine the best dose to give to adolescents and adults with sickle cell disease. View the information sheet [PDF].
To refer a patient to the Johnson Haynes, Jr., M.D., Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, or to arrange a consultation, call us at 1-800-388-8721. We are eager to share information about the latest sickle cell treatment and research. We welcome physician consults and referrals.
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited disorder which causes red blood cells to lose their ability to carry oxygen. While the normal red blood cell is shaped like a smooth and flexible disc, the sickle red blood cell becomes sickle shaped after oxygen is released from its hemoglobin. This sickle shaped red blood cell is hard and sticky and forms blockages in small blood vessels. These blockages lead to repeated acute and chronic tissue damage, chronic anemia and severe painful episodes.
Episodic pain events, infection and lung complications are the more common problems caused by sickle cell disease. Complications may include stroke, kidney failure, damage to joints, and other debilitating or life threatening conditions.
Johnson Haynes, Jr., M.D., left such a rich legacy at the University of South Alabama and the Mobile area that it is only fitting the University’s Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center to which he devoted much of his career bears his name.
Since August 2001, Dr. Haynes led the USA Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center and cared for most of the adults with sickle cell disease in the southern half of Alabama. In September 2022, the USA Board of Trustees authorized the naming of the center as the Johnson Haynes Jr., M.D., Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center in recognition of his longstanding commitment to the treatment, research, and education of sickle cell disease.
Dr. Haynes, a longtime, well-respected member of the University of South Alabama community, passed away on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022 at his home.
He was only the third leader of the center in its history. In 1980, it was founded at the USA Medical Center under the leadership of Vipul Mankad, M.D., and in partnership with the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Mobile Chapter. In addition to Mankad and Haynes, Steve Goodman, Ph.D., also served as director.
Eight years after its inception, the USA Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center was awarded one of only 10 prestigious, federally funded grants from the National Institutes of Health to sustain the program for the next 15 years. Under his leadership, the center went on to fund the Cecil L. Parker Sickle Cell Lectureship Endowment, establish the Pediatric to Adult Care Transition Program, enroll patients into pharmaceutical-sponsored clinical trials and issue one patent.
In high school, Dr. Haynes excelled in sports and academics, and graduated from Opelika High School as president of the student body in 1971. That fall, he enrolled as a pre-med student at Tuskegee Institute. In 1975, he started medical school at the University of South Alabama.
A 1980 graduate of the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine, Dr. Haynes completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in pulmonary medicine with USA Health. He joined the faculty in 1984 as the first African American clinical and basic sciences faculty member.
He served as a professor of internal medicine at the Whiddon College of Medicine, assistant dean of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, director of the USA Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, and a pulmonologist with USA Health.
During his decades of service at USA, Dr. Haynes became distinguished for his expertise in sickle cell anemia. His adult sickle cell patients came from all over southern Alabama and the Gulf Coast region, and he was dedicated to them and committed to research that would find a cure for the malady that overwhelmingly afflicts people of color.
Throughout his career, Dr. Haynes was a champion for diversity and representation in healthcare and medical education. In 2011, he established the USA Office of Diversity and Cultural Competence, which was renamed the Office of Diversity and Inclusion in 2014.
In addition to coordinating the DREAM and SouthMed Prep Scholars programs, Dr. Haynes also served as the faculty sponsor for the Whiddon College of Medicine's newly established chapter of Black Men in White Coats, which aims to increase the number of Black men in the field of medicine.
He was also a devoted mentor to countless medical students and residents. He tirelessly recruited promising students from historically black colleges to attend medical school at South, and he helped to create a summer program to sharpen the skills they would need for entry.
Dr. Haynes will be remembered as an excellent clinician and scientist who was passionate about his patients, and a trailblazer who paved the way for young African Americans to follow in his footsteps and become physicians. His legacy lives on in the countless students, faculty, staff, and patients he influenced throughout his tenure.
He served on various local, regional, and national committees dedicated to the treatment of sickle cell disease and has served as principal investigator or collaborator on more than three dozen research grants. He also has authored or co-authored countless publications, book chapters, newsletters, abstracts and reports.
His life’s work has been recognized through numerous awards, including the National Research Service Award, America’s Top Doctor, the Edith Mitchell Health Initiative Academy of Achievers Perseverance Award, and a Distinguished Alumni Award from the USA National Alumni Association and Medical Alumni Association.

The Dr. Cecil L. Parker, Jr. Sickle Cell Disease Distinguished Endowed Lectureship was established in 2008 to support sickle cell education for patients, physicians and allied health professionals in Mobile and surrounding counties, in perpetuity. The University of South Alabama chose to name this endowment to honor Dr. Parker for his service to USA and for his extensive and lengthy medical career of caring for adult patients affected with sickle cell disease. In 1986, Dr. Parker started his private practice in Mobile in Internal Medicine. Shortly thereafter, he was named the Director of the USA Adult Sickle Cell Center and served in this position for nine years. Even after resigning his post as Director, Dr. Parker continues to support the Johnson Haynes, Jr., M.D., Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center.
The mission of the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center is to improve the lives of persons affected by sickle cell disease through state-of-the-art clinical care, clinical research and education. The establishment of the endowment is a critical component in realizing the mission of the Center. As a result, we have been able to assure the necessary educational outreach is and will always be in place to serve our patients and healthcare professionals. Ultimately, a well-informed healthcare community translates to optimum patient care and outcomes. Over the past several years, the Dr. Cecil L. Parker, Jr. Sickle Cell Disease Distinguished Endowed Lectureship, which is a component of the annual University of South Alabama Sickle Cell Regional Conference, has provided a platform to educate and equip over 1,200 healthcare providers with the knowledge to effectively assess, manage and assist patients who are affected by sickle cell disease.
None of this would be possible without the grass roots community efforts of individual and corporate donors. With the assistance of our supporters, we have raised over $130,000 to support our patients and their families as they struggle to cope with sickle cell disease. There are not enough words to thank those that have supported the endowment.
As we look toward the future, it is imperative to offer increased support to our patients and to assure the healthcare community is well informed about the most current clinical practices available in the care of patients with sickle cell disease. Please consider how you might reinforce our efforts to improve the lives of those persons affected by sickle cell disease.
