Medical Center Infusion Services was established in February of 1997. Our mission: to provide responsible, quality home infusion services for the purpose of achieving positive patient outcomes that improve the quality of life, while providing valuable physician assistance throughout the continuum of care.
What is Home Infusion Therapy?
Home infusion therapy involves the administration of medications using intravenous (small tube placed in a vein) and subcutaneous (under the skin) routes allowing patients to receive vital fluids and medications at home. While Medical Center Infusion Services is responsible for creating the infusion solutions ordered by the physician and providing all the necessary equipment for the infusion process, the administration of the infusion solutions is provided by a Home Health agency. Medical Center Infusion Services then provides the clinical monitoring and followup of the patient.
The main advantages of home infusion therapy are:
The opportunity for the patient/family to participate in their own plan of care
The freedom to recover in the familiar comfort of one’s own home
Home infusion therapy is normally more cost effective for the patient as well as for insurance companies.
Home infusion has been proven to be a safe and effective alternative to longer hospital visits. Before beginning therapy, thorough assessments of the patient and home environment are performed to determine that each patient is an appropriate candidate for home care.
With our staff of dedicated, trained professionals, confidently place your trust in Medical Center Infusion Services for in-home infusion needs.
