Lincoln Medical Center Launches New Outpatient Infusion Service

Lincoln Health System in its effort to provide the most comprehensive medical services for our community, is proud to announce the opening of Outpatient IV Infusion Services.  Infusion therapy services will be provided for IV antibiotics and chronic diseases at Lincoln Medical Center so that patients won’t need to travel hours away to receive their infusion therapy. Registered nurses and trained Pharmacists have specialized training in IV infusion therapy and are focused on patient safety and comfort.  The infusion room is supplied with comfortable leather recliners and televisions.  Also, a variety of appointment time options that are available Monday through Friday, and include options for daily IV therapy if needed.

 

Outpatient infusion therapy can save patients hundreds, if not, thousands of dollars in out of pocket expenses in comparison to inpatient hospitalization, emergency room services, and home health services, as well as, save patients time and travel expenses.

 

Most major insurance carriers are accepted including most state and federally funded plans. Medicare, Medicaid, HMO, and commercially insured patients qualify for outpatient infusion therapy. There are no copays and a wide variety of payment options are provided.

 

Our nurses and case managers are specially trained to provide a wide range of therapies and treat disorders such as infectious disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, CIDP, Allergic Asthma, Allergic Urticaria, Multiple Sclerosis, chronic migraine, Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohn’s Disease.
