Infusion Suite

Our Infusion Suite

The spacious, bright and airy Infusion Suite provides service 7 days a week and can accommodate 18 patients at a time, one of the first outpatient Centers in the United States to offer this degree of service. Infusions are made more comfortable with large, inviting treatment chairs, blankets, a flat-screen television, and a coffee and snack bar. Massage and reflexology services are available to patients during their treatments upon request.

A Private Infusion Suite is also available for patients who desire more solitude during their treatment. For an additional fee, patients can enjoy this private, hard-wood floored room complete with a comfortable chair, plasma-screen television, high-speed internet access and a private restroom. A personal concierge provides your favorite reading material and stocks a mini-bar of complimentary gourmet coffee and snacks. Delivery of meals from local restaurants is also available. The infusion suite is staffed by oncology trained nurses whose extensive knowledge of preparing, administering and monitoring patients during intravenous infusions is essential to our patients' safety and peace of mind. Their vast experience with IV placement ensures that even patients with poor IV access will receive their IV medications with the least amount of discomfort. A nurses' aide is also present in the suite to closely monitor patients clinically as well as assist in making our patients as comfortable as possible. An IMSMP physician is always present in the center while IV treatments are in process.

        

 

Preparing for your IV

Here are some tips on receiving intravenous treatments at the IMSMP:

  • Please arrive at your scheduled time and notify the office if you will be significantly delayed. If there is a problem on the weekend, please page the doctor on call by calling 212-265-8070.
  • Be sure to hydrate well on the night before and morning of your infusion.
  • You may want to bring something to eat and drink, especially if your infusion is over a long period of time.
  • You may also enter the IMSMP on 58th street, which is actually closer to the infusion suite. The entrance is marked 518 (West 58th Street). Please note that on weekends, you must use the 58th street entrance.
  • Guests are welcome but, as space is limited, please limit to one guest.
  • Children under the age of 10 will not be permitted in the infusion suite.
  • Generally, it is advisable to call ahead if you know that you will need prescriptions or you would like to try to meet with a physician. This way, we can do our best to accommodate your request.
  • If your treatment is ongoing, please schedule your next visit before leaving.
