Our Cancer Care Infusion Team
We never forget that you are more than a patient with a condition. You have a name. You have a sense of humor. You have a unique source of strength. And we’re honored to accompany you on your journey. Every nurse in the infusion center has been chemotherapy/biotherapy certified by the cancer Nursing Society. Several have also completed the advanced level certification required to become an cancer certified nurse. But even more important than the letters behind our names is the purpose behind our training. You are the reason we hold such a high bar — because we want you to feel confident and secure in our care. Whatever your cancer diagnosis, we are equipped to provide the infusion therapies you need. From chemotherapy to immunotherapy, we are well trained in a nearly infinite variety of infusion procedures. Our high-tech medical treatments are delivered in a space that’s anything but institutional. Beautiful views of the mountains are visible out nearly every window. As much as possible, we want to make the experience more like visiting a spa than visiting the hospital. And with this level of treatment in your own backyard, you don’t have to be a road warrior to battle your cancer.
