    Infusion Center

    Artesia General Hospital provides both inpatient and outpatient infusion services in a comfortable and safe setting. When prescribed by your physician, intravenous (IV) therapy can be one of the fastest ways to deliver fluids, medications and blood through the body via IV, PICC, CVC, port or IM/SQ when applicable.

    Our Infusion Center has been designed with your needs in mind. Specially trained nurses care for each patient in the comfort of a private room with complimentary refreshments and entertainment such as music, television or a favorite book.

    We will work to accommodate your schedule, and can provide services in either a clinic or hospital setting.
