Infusion & Chemotherapy
At Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital, we know it’s much easier to get infusion therapy or chemotherapy in a friendly environment that’s close to home. That’s why we provide outpatient infusion therapy services staffed by experienced, professional and caring nurses. The convenience of our services also means that your medical costs may decrease and you are likely to spend less time in the hospital. There’s no need to travel a long distance to receive the treatment you need when it’s available right here at home.
What is an infusion?
For patients who need to treat illnesses or counteract side effects of treatment, infusion is the administration of a solution or medication into a vein using a needle or catheter. The treatment is most frequently used for cancer and blood disorder patients but can also be used to disperse antibiotics and other medications. The convenience of our outpatient service means that your medical costs may decrease and you are likely to spend less time in the hospital and more time getting on with your life.

How do you get started?
