Whether you are looking into home infusion therapy for the first time, curious about services, or are exploring costs, we can provide clear answers.

Below, we have addressed some of the most commonly asked questions about home infusion therapy, how it works, and what to expect.

Home infusion therapy is the provision of intravenous (IV) medications through a catheter directly into the patient’s bloodstream. Infusion therapy is prescribed for more serious infections and specialized disorders when oral medications are less effective.  Our services enable patients to receive therapy and treatment in the comfort of their own home.

Once home infusion therapy is prescribed by your physician we will work directly with you to coordinate your start of care. All necessary supplies will be delivered in time for your first visit from one of our nurses. Follow up visits and deliveries will be scheduled at your convenience and we will regularly update your physician on your progress to ensure you receive the best results and outcomes from your therapy.
