Infusion is the slow delivery of medication or fluid into a vein through an IV. At Garden City Hospital, physicians and registered, certified nurses staff the Outpatient Infusion Services department, where patients come, on an outpatient basis, to complete intravenous (IV) treatment. Some patients are scheduled for just one visit, while others come for infusion services regularly over several weeks or months.

All patients must have a referral from their doctor before making an appointment at the Outpatient Infusion clinic. Please check with your insurance provider if you have questions about referrals. The Outpatient Infusion Services staff will verify your insurance coverage before your first visit and contact you if additional information is needed.
If labs such as blood work are required, they must be drawn 24 to 48 hours in advance of your treatment. If not drawn in advance, this will delay treatment by one to two hours. Lab services are available at Garden City Hospital.

Your first visit to your physician’s office will schedule your first appointment at Outpatient Infusion Services. Bring your physician’s orders or prescription with you to your first appointment. At your first visit, you may schedule additional visits directly with the Infusion Services staff.
New patients should allow plenty of extra time at their first appointment. An additional one to two hours, in addition to treatment time, is needed. The length of treatment varies on the medications ordered. The hospital’s pharmacy requires an hour or more to prepare your treatment regimen once you arrive for your appointment.
