Infusion centers are facilities where patients receive IV medication prescribed by their doctor.
Freestanding infusion centers are ambulatory locations exclusively focused on this type of treatment.
With the rapid growth of biologics and innovative treatments, infusion therapy is in high demand.
Budah visited Wasatch Infusion to learn more about the process when you get an IV med. He learned that right after check-in, you are taken to your private suite, so you don't need to sit in a bay with other patients to receive treatment. This is especially valuable for immunocompromised patients - and more so during a pandemic.
The staff at Wasatch Infusion is highly trained and they employ a one-poke philosophy so that your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
Once you are receiving medication you can enjoy an array of comforts including entertainment, lift recliners and complimentary food and beverages.
Then you just relax during your treatment.
Wasatch Infusion is the only center in Utah that offers exclusively private rooms. Plus, they only offer infusions, so you have an expertly trained staff on IV placement, delivery and care.
They are open 365 days a year with three locations along the Wasatch Front so scheduling is flexible, allowing you to fit the treatment into your schedule rather than relying on narrow operating hours or availability at hospitals or doctors' offices.
Many people would be surprised that these infusion centers, like Wasatch Infusion, are more affordable to insurance and patients than hospitals or some other outpatient facilities.
Since infusion is not typically the first plan of action for treatment, most patients have already tried other medication methods. So, it's very important to communicate with your medical team to evaluate the best options for treatment. When your physician prescribes an infusion, his or her office will send Wasatch Infusion the information and they'll do the rest.
Wasatch Infusion also offer wellness infusions like immunity, beauty and weight loss.
And, they are going above and beyond the required safety protocols during the pandemic.
