Infusion Therapy Center

 Valley View Medical Center’s new Infusion Therapy Center is furnished with leather recliners and complimentary WiFi, offering a convenient, comfortable environment for patients needing infusion services. Experienced nurses provide a seamless experience by coordinating patient care with physicians, pharmacy and lab.
      Infusion therapy allows patients to safely receive medication through a flexible tube (catheter) that’s placed in a vein or just under the skin. Typically, “infusion therapy” means that a drug is given intravenously (through a vein), but it can also include fluid replacements such as blood transfusions and a series of antibiotic therapy. It is often prescribed when a patient’s condition is so severe that it cannot be treated effectively by oral medications.

     Infusion therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions including:

  • Cancer
  • Dehydration
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Hemophilia
  • Immune Deficiencies
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    The major infusion therapies are IV antibiotics which are prescribed for infections that are unresponsive to oral antibiotics. Diagnoses primarily using IV antibiotics include:
     
  • Cellulitis
  • Sepsis
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Sinusitis
