Chemotherapy & Infusion Center
The Chemotherapy & Infusion Center offers a wide variety of treatments for cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, immune deficiency, and other conditions requiring infusion and immunotherapy. Depending on what type of treatment you receive, your stay at the Center may be as little as 30 minutes or as long as 8 hours. Our goal is to make your time with us as comfortable and healing as possible, providing you with safe, quality and compassionate care.
Physician Treatment PlanThe Chemotherapy & Infusion Center requires a physician to write your treatment plan orders before an appointment can be scheduled.
Appointment SchedulingYour appointment can be scheduled through your physician's office or once we have received your physician's orders, we will contact you directly to schedule a convenient appointment time.
Insurance Pre-AuthorizationsSome procedures require a pre-authorization from your insurance company 24 - 48 hours in advance of your scheduled treatment. You will be notified by our staff prior to your scheduled appointment if your treatment has not been approved by your insurance company.
Laboratory ServicesLab tests are often necessary before you start your scheduled treatment; your physician will order these tests. For your convenience, laboratory service is available in the Center. Depending on lab tests required you may have your labs drawn the same day of your scheduled treatment, or you may have your labs drawn the day before you scheduled appointment. Having your labs drawn prior to your scheduled appointment may shorten your treatment time in the Chemotherapy & Infusion Center.
Check-in/RegistrationBecause treatments vary in administration time and the Center schedules patients based on the anticipated treatment time, it is important for you to be on time for your appointment. Please check-in and register at the front desk of Cabinet Peaks Medical Center. After the registrar verifies your information and places a name band around your wrist, you will be escorted to the Center.
Settle into a Comfortable RoomYour treatment room includes storage for your personal belongings and a shared bathroom. A nurse will check your blood pressure, height, weight and medical history. All caregivers are trained and certified in Chemotherapy and Biotherapy administration.
Family Members and FriendsYour family and friends are welcome to accompany you to your appointment. Our comfortable center is designed to easily accommodates your loved ones. In order to maintain a calm and healing environment, we respectfully ask that you speak quietly.

Your Questions and Concerns are Important to UsWhile at the Center, you may have questions or concerns; please feel free to discuss them with your nurse. If he or she is not able to answer your question, it will be relayed to the appropriate staff or physician for an answer as soon as possible.

Going HomeAt the time of your discharge, your nurse will provide you and your family with important written information about your treatment.
