Infusion Therapy

If your Englewood Health provider recommends infusion services at Englewood Hospital’s Wilson Kaplen Infusion Center, trust that you’ll receive superior care from experienced professionals in a comfortable, private environment.

What’s Infusion Therapy?

During infusion therapy, your health care provider uses a needle or catheter (a long, thin tube) to send medication or nutrition directly into a vein in your body.

Benefits of Infusion Therapy

Your health care providers may recommend infusion therapy if they think it’ll be more effective for you than taking medications by mouth. You may have faster results with fewer side effects.
