What is an outpatient infusion center?
At Chiefland outpatient infusion center, we offer intravenous (IV) infusion therapy, or the delivery of medications and nutrients directly into your bloodstream.
With outpatient intravenous infusion therapy you can get the medications you need in the comfort of their office instead of going to the hospital. The team at the infusion center ensures that you receive the highest quality of care.
They perform a thorough assessment of your medical condition, review your infection treatments, take care of bloodwork, closely monitor your health during your infusion, and perform daily assessments to check for side effects.
