Infusion therapy is a key component of any cancer treatment plan. At Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, we ensure comfort, consistency and continuity by taking an innovative approach to infusion therapy that ties together the inpatient and outpatient aspects of care.
Our infusion therapy professionals are certified to administer both chemotherapy and biotherapy, cross-trained to provide care in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and experienced in oncology nursing. Therefore, all patients receive the same standard of care from a familiar team of infusion therapy specialists throughout their cancer care journey.
The clinical expertise of our staff is matched by a healing environment designed to address the unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each patient. Expansive windows with beautiful mountain views and a covered balcony offering an outdoor therapy experience is bound to ensure serenity and tranquility.
