Sun Health Infusion Therapy offers ambulatory IV services in a safe and comfortable environment. Short-term and long-term intravenous (IV) therapy are provided with special attention and careful monitoring.
To ensure safety, all IV treatments are administered through an electronic pump under the supervision of a Registered Nurse. IV therapy can last from one half hour to several hours, depending on your prescription.
If you are well enough to be at home, but still need IV medication, your doctor may prescribe outpatient Infusion Therapy instead of admitting you to the hospital or nursing home.
Medicare and most insurances pay for outpatient infusion therapy. Sun Health will verify your Medicare and/or insurance to ensure this is a covered benefit.
