MVHS’s Outpatient Infusion Unit is where patients come to complete intravenous (IV) treatment, including chemotherapy. Our Outpatient Infusion Unit, located at the Faxton Campus, is staffed with experienced registered nurses, many of whom are Oncology Certified Nurses (OCN).
The decision on where to receive your treatment is made collaboratively with your physician. Please feel free to share your preferences and concerns with your doctor. We would be happy to arrange a tour of our newly remodeled Outpatient Infusion Unit to assist you as you consider and discuss this important decision.
Care is available in both private and open areas in a warm, friendly atmosphere with complimentary continental breakfast and lunch menu choices. Patients may use our education and resource materials, along with videos, music, a puzzle table, books and magazines.
Outpatient Infusion provides care from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. We make every effort to accommodate your busy life. Appointments are scheduled by your physician’s office. To reach the Outpatient Infusion Unit directly, call 315-624-5234.
