Laurie Bass Sklaver Infusion Center at NWH
Chemotherapy at the Infusion Center
The Infusion Center at Northern Westchester Hospital is part of the Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center, ensuring continuity of your cancer treatment and care.
Comforting Care Close to Home
Research shows that patients respond better to chemotherapy and are less anxious when they are treated in a pleasing environment that is part of their own community. Infusion treatments are delivered by chemotherapy-certified registered nurses who will educate and support you and your care partner. They are present with you throughout the entire procedure.
The infusion suite is equipped with a television and supplied with lunch and snacks. You are welcome to have friends and family stay with you in the suite during your treatment.
Certain forms of chemotherapy have been shown to improve patient survival in cases of hormone resistant cancer. Standing out amongst cancer hospitals in New York, NWH is holds a number of clinical trials for the treatment of hormone resistant cancers, among other conditions.
