Infusion Therapy

Infusion Therapy at Mille Lacs Health System is a separate unit at the hospital specifically designated for those patients needing therapies that do not require hospitalization, but are essential to care, either temporarily or on an ongoing basis.

Our department also works in cooperation with the Mille Lacs Health System Lab, Clinic, Acute Care, and Long Term Care. We fulfill needs for patients that come from many facilities, including St. Cloud Hospital and Coburn Cancer Center.


Good to Know

If you or a loved one is visiting or vacationing in the area and you need any type of infusion therapy, there’s no need to drive far or return home just to receive it. Call the Outpatient number to get set up so you can spend as much time doing what you came to the area to do.

Therapies we offer include:

  • IV therapies (chemo, antibiotics, biotherapies, etc.)
  • Catheter change
  • Central line care
  • Wound care
  • Electrolyte replacement
  • Therapeutic Phlebotomies
  • PICC lines and ports
  • Blood transfusions

 

Convenient care, close to home

A separate entrance is at the front of the campus, on the west side. The infusion space is bright, airy, and quiet, with several private bays and one enclosed room. Nurses can closely monitor patients during treatments. Additionally, computers at the chairside are available for patients to check email, watch TV, or browse the Internet. A kitchenette provides light snacks and hydration.
