Our infusion center is located on the third floor. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment and stop at the registration desk on the main floor to register. Use elevators 5 & 6 to get to the third floor and follow the signs to the Outpatient Infusion Center.

Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and weekends are available for antibiotics. We make every effort to start your appointment on time. We cannot begin to prepare your infusion until after the nurse has assessed you. While we are carefully preparing your infusions you may relax, read, watch TV, use our internet or enjoy a light snack.
