Outpatient Infusion Center

Infusion therapy is the term often used for the administration of medication through a needle or catheter. Infusion therapy can be used to treat diseases or conditions. It can also be used to counteract the side effects of treatments.

Glens Falls Hospital’s Outpatient Infusion Center is dedicated to providing patient care excellence. We offer a comfortable and convenient outpatient setting for those who require frequent infusions of medications. Infusion services are provided by a staff of registered nurses who specialize in intravenous therapy.

You will receive your infusion in a recliner or bed, while watching television on a large screen, listening to music, reading, or simply relaxing. Free Wi-Fi is also available. Your comfort is our priority.
