Located on the first floor of the Hospital, Infusion Services is an outpatient department that provides a variety of clinical services to patients on a short-term basis. Among the conditions the Unit commonly treats are multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, Crohn's disease, dehydration and anemia. The goals of the treatments vary based on the specific disease and are often prophylactic in nature. For example, patients with rheumatoid arthritis receive infusions on a regularly scheduled basis. Altogether, the Unit serves more than 6,000 patients annually.
Appointments for Infusion Services can often be made and confirmed with short wait times. Flexible patient appointment times are available Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to as late as 8:00 p.m. for patients who want to come in after work.
