Infusion Center

The Infusion Center at Quincy Medical Group accepts a referral from internal and external providers. This helps prevent costly hospital visits and travel expenses to the patients. We schedule patients for routine treatments but also have the ability to take walk-in patients which helps to accommodate quick start antibiotic therapies and hydration. With our extended evening and Saturday hours, we are able to help satisfy the needs of working patients.

With our Pharmacist and IV technicians on staff, we have the ability to quickly mix medications to shorten the wait time for patients. We also work with specialty pharmacies for insurance that requires patients to obtain medications through Specialty Pharmacies.

Developed to create a physician-driven patient care service, the Infusion Center is meant to provide the highest degree of quality professional service with the least amount of inconvenience for the patient. All your outpatient infusion needs can be served in one of our two convenient locations. Your infusion care will be directed and followed by the infusion support team consisting of infusion nurses, pharmacists, and IV technicians.
