UPMC Hamot Infusion Center
Patients seeking a safe, comfortable, convenient alternative to inpatient care for quality infusion therapy can visit the UPMC Hamot Infusion Center. Since the Infusion Center is hospital-based, patients with Medicare and other insurances are covered for therapies that would otherwise not be reimbursed in a home care setting. For patients who require infusion therapy during their hospitalization, the Infusion Center can decrease the length of stay providing those services on an outpatient basis. The Infusion Center utilizes high technology infusion pumps and medication administration systems to enhance patient safety.
The Infusion Center is staffed with registered nurses specifically trained in infusion therapy. Patients utilizing the Infusion Center can take advantage of free parking for easy access, along with the comforts of recliner chairs, complimentary beverages, snacks, and cable television.
The Infusion Center is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please call 814-877-6600 to schedule an appointment.
Therapy times vary based on the treatment. All therapies must be ordered by a physician.
