Fla., CELEBRATION, Fla., Sept. 4, 2018 — In a welcome development for cancer patients receiving outpatient infusion therapies, Florida Hospital Celebration Health will soon open the doors to its new, full-service infusion center.

The opening, set for Sept. 5, brings to six the number of Florida Hospital infusion clinics now operating in our region, and provides residents of Celebration and its surrounding communities a convenient, state-of-the-art option for outpatient cancer care. The other infusion center locations are: Orlando, East Orlando, Altamonte, Kissimmee, and Winter Park.

The infusion center joins a robust lineup of established cancer services at the campus, including world-class specialists in breast, head-and-neck, and prostate cancers. Florida Hospital Celebration continues to grow with new comprehensive cancer services coming in early 2019, positioning the facility as the only one of its kind in the region.

These services will provide Osceola County with the expertise of additional sub-specialized medical oncologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists while providing the latest in cancer-treatment options.

“We are dedicated to providing world-class, state-of-the-art care close to home for as many cancer patients as possible,” said Dr. Mark A. Socinski, executive medical director of the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute. “Opening this infusion center in Celebration increases the options patients have to receive cancer care at a place most convenient for them.”

Infusible and injectable drugs require preparation by medical professionals and monitoring of patients while the drugs are administered. Infusion centers allow patients to receive this care in an outpatient setting that they visit regularly over the course of their treatment regimen.

Services offered at Florida Hospital Infusion Centers include chemotherapy, IV therapy and hydration, immune system therapy, blood and blood product transfusions, injections, administration of antibiotics and pain medications, and central-line care and maintenance.

The center will feature private patient bays, allowing advanced infusion services in a soothing environment, as well as access to clinical trials for patients. It’s located at 380 Celebration Place on the campus of Florida Hospital Celebration Health.
