Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy is prescribed when a patient's condition cannot be treated effectively by oral medications. Typically, infusion therapy means that the drug is administered intravenously. Outpatient infusion therapy is offered at Deaconess Clinic Downtown, The Chancellor Center for Oncology, Gateway Hospital, and Deaconess Hospital Main Campus.
To schedule or change your outpatient infusion appointment call 812-492-5255.
