frequently ask question

What is the purpose of an infusion center?

Infusion centers are designed to provide patients with the same effective IV services that hospitals do, with increased focus on IV patients and additional comfort, especially for individuals who prefer or must receive medication via infusions. This comfortable environment also includes private suites, reclining chairs, refreshments, multiple viewing options, WiFi access and/or blankets so patients can enjoy their IV experience in a space dedicated to IV therapy.

Can’t IV patients just go to the hospital?

While the hospital is an option to receive IV therapy, having an IV center has several benefits for IV patients, and others:

  1. Medical staff with focused training on IV therapy, PICC, mid-line, and dual lumen lines, as well as catheter insertion, therapeutic phlebotomy, and port access and flushes.
  2. Cost-effective for both patients and insurance companies, with a dedicated place for IV patients to get what they need and remove additional costs that could be accrued from going elsewhere.
  3. Decreased treatment wait time for IV patients.
