Pediatric-Specialty Services

The Ambulatory Infusion Center in the lower level of Wheeler Heart and Vascular Center is available to provide pediatric infusion services, including blood transfusions, chemotherapy treatments and IV fluids.

CoxHealth affiliate Home Parenteral Services manages the center. Vice president Debbie Cain says treating pediatric patients in this setting keeps them out of the hospital, and limits their exposure to other illnesses. "This is especially important for our oncology patients, who have compromised immune systems," she says.

The Children's Miracle Network recently purchased a video gaming system and DVD players for the center. Says Cain: "It makes the area much more pediatric-friendly. Patients can now play a game or choose a movie to watch while they receive treatment."

The center also provides infusion therapy for adults, and is open from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. everyday, including weekends and holidays. For more information, call 269-2058.
