The Infusion Center at Kent Hospital, a Woman & Infants Facility
What is the Infusion Center at Kent Hospital?
The Infusion Center is an outpatient facility on the Kent Hospital campus where you can receive IV treatments prescribed by your doctor and staffed with nurses who specialize in oncology and IV procedures.
The Center is open Monday through Friday. Our hours are Monday and Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Our Center has comfortable patient areas with reclining lounge chairs, individual cable TV and music stations. Another amenity is our lounge for conversation with a self-service kitchenette and snacks for patients. A box lunch is provided for patients undergoing longer treatments. A stretcher is available for comfort, as well as a private treatment room for procedures. The Center also features a beautiful "Serenity Garden" where patients may relax, weather permitting.
Literature and information is available about treatments, medications and illnesses, as well as the opportunity to review and discuss any questions you may have with one of the Center's nurse specialists.
