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, hardwood 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.
The Infusion Suite is undergoing a major renovation and expansion to enhance privacy and comfort for our patients receiving various intravenous treatments. This upgrade will take place in 2020.
