Good Samaritan Infusion Center
Outpatient Infusion Services in Knox County
The Good Samaritan Oncology Infusion Center features 12 infusion chairs
that recline. Each comes with a side table and individual television.
Additional chairs are provided for family and caregivers who accompany
you to treatment. In addition to the open area with infusion chairs, there
are three private rooms, two with hospital beds and one with an infusion
chair, for those patients who require extra privacy and care. The Infusion
Center is spacious and surrounded on two sides by windows from floor to
ceiling that let in plenty of natural light.
Services provided by our Infusion Center include:
- Chemotherapy that is delivered by injection, IV, or intraperitoneal
- Therapeutic phlebotomy
- Transfusion of blood products
- Many other non-chemotherapy infusions and injections.
Specially Trained Registered Nurses & On-Site Pharmacy
The Infusion Center is staffed by highly skilled, highly trained RNs who
have completed rigorous training through the Oncology Nursing Society
in chemotherapy administration. We have an on-site pharmacy in the Infusion
Center staffed with pharmacists and technicians so that chemotherapy is
prepared and delivered in the safest environment and delivered directly
to the nurse who will be administering it.
