St. John’s Infusion Center

Infusion Services in Jackson Hole

There are many reasons someone might need infusion services: Age may have made it difficult to take medication, an injury has rendered you unable to eat, a medical condition has rendered your stomach incapable of processing medication and nutrients; whatever the case may be, infusion can provide you with the vital resources you need in an emergency.

Infusion services are offered at the St. John’s Infusion Center. The specially trained staff here can facilitate numerous infusion therapies. We work with patients to make sure their service is as comfortable and painless as possible.

What Does Infusion Treat?

Typically, infusion is used to directly administer medications into the blood when a condition has advanced to a point that oral medication isn’t strong enough to treat it. Chemotherapy is a form of infusion therapy.

How Does It Work?

Infusion medication flows through a tube that is directly attached to the patient’s vein through a needle or catheter. For many years infusion was only performed on patients staying the hospital, but medical advances have made it possible to receive infusion on an outpatient basis. This has allowed for more effective and affordable treatments for patients in need of continuous infusion therapy. Today, infusion outpatients need only come to the hospital while the medication is administered, rather than staying overnight.

St. John’s Infusion Center is designed to make patients feel more comfortable while receiving treatment. Feel free to discuss with the staff ways that would make your treatment more convenient. This is a joint process and we enjoy working as a team to provide ideal medical services.
