Infusion Treatment Center
Handling a new diagnosis that requires immediate action can be overwhelming. At Providence Hospital’s Infusion Treatment Center, we are here to help guide you through the process of treating cancer and other blood disorders. Moving through this experience can be challenging and at times overwhelming. At Providence, you will find support, love and compassion. Above all, you are not alone in this journey.
The Infusion Treatment Center at Providence Hospital provides outpatient intravenous (IV) therapy for patients with cancer and other blood disorders. The Center offers services including:
- Antibiotic Therapy
- Blood Transfusions and Blood Product Infusions
- Bone Marrow Biopsies
- IV Access Management
- Special Procedures
The Center treats patients on an outpatient basis, so educating patients and their families about care options is extremely important. The healthcare professionals at the Infusion Treatment Center provide one-on-one education and materials to teach patients and their families how to continue care at home. Through a highly specialized and compassionate staff of oncology nurses, oncology pharmacists, and an on-site pharmacy, we work to heal the whole person – body, mind, and soul.
Open Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, the Infusion Treatment Center offers flexible scheduling. The Center also has comfortable accommodations including special infusion lounge chairs and personal televisions. Private rooms are also available.
Before starting testing or treatment at Providence Hospital, patients should register through the Admitting Office, located on the ground floor of the main hospital. This is to ensure that all necessary testing and paperwork is completed before you begin treatment.
