Experience the Blessing Difference: Infusion Center:

The Blessing Infusion Center is conveniently located within the Cancer Center. Our specially trained nurses provide you with the fluids, blood products or medications you need while you relax in our luxurious recliners.

In the Infusion Center, we provide the highest level of care in a comfortable and pleasant environment. Blood transfusions can take up to 6 or 8 hours, while some antibiotic infusions may take as little as 30 minutes. For whatever length of time you are with us, we work to make your experience a positive one.

Features of the Blessing infusion center include:

  • Comfort, attention and care: You’ll enjoy reclining in our heated, massaging recliners under a warm blanket. Every chair has an integrated TV if you would like to watch while you receive your treatment. You can listen to music or read a book if you prefer. We do our best to make your visit comfortable and pleasant.

  • Meals and beverages: We offer every patient a delicious meal and a choice of several hot or cold beverages. You can choose what you would like to eat from our room service menu.

  • Individual bays: We have 7 individual bays, each equipped with a recliner. You can draw the curtains for more privacy or leave them open, as you prefer.

  • Dedicated staff: Our nurses have specialized training in delivering infusion therapies and make your treatment as painless as possible. We keep you informed about your treatment and answer any questions you may have.

  • Daily appointment availability: We know it is important for you to get the fluids and medications when you need them. Your convenience is our goal. Our center is open 7 days a week and on holidays, as follows:

Services and Products We Offer

Our infusion nurses provide treatments including:

  • Blood products: Certain treatments and conditions can lower your red blood cell or platelet levels. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the rest of your body. Platelets help your blood to clot properly. You may need a blood or platelet transfusion to keep these cell counts at normal levels.

  • Antibiotics: We can infuse systemic antibiotics (medications that travel throughout the body) to help you fight off an infection.

  • Fluids: If you become dehydrated, we can restore your fluids with solutions that include the right balance of electrolytes. Electrolytes are chemicals, such as sodium and potassium, that help keep you hydrated and maintain normal blood pressure when they are in balance. You can lose electrolytes through sweating or blood loss.

  • Chemotherapy: If medications are part of your cancer treatment plan, you may receive your medications through infusion.
