The Genesis Infusion Centers are located inside the Cancer Care Institute at Genesis Medical Center West Campus, as well as within the Emergency Department at GMC, DeWitt. Registered Nurses with certification in Oncology Nursing staff the Infusion Center. Care is provided to patients in an open, airy environment. We provide a comfortable reclining chair as some of the treatments are lengthy.

Examples of treatments provided in the Infusion Center are:

  • Blood and platelet transfusions
  • Insertion of PICCs (peripherally inserted central catheters)
  • Chemotherapy administration, including home ambulatory pumps
  • Care of central lines such as Hickman or Groshong catheters
  • Intravenous medications such as antibiotics, solumedrol, iron dextran
  • Migraine headache treatment requiring outpatient intravenous medications
  • Plasmapheresis (in conjunction with the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center)
  • Therapeutic phlebotomy
  • Drawing blood from central lines for laboratory studies

All patients seen in the Infusion Center are admitted to Genesis Medical Center as an outpatient. A physician with privileges to practice at Genesis Medical Center must write orders for the treatment to be given.
