Infusion Services

There is nothing more important than your health. The UofL Hospital Infusion Clinic, a part of UofL Hospital – Outpatient Pharmacy Services, provides infusion (IV) therapy, medication administered through a needle or catheter, in a comfortable outpatient setting.  This therapy is prescribed when a patient’s condition cannot be treated effectively by oral medication. Medications such as monoclonal antibodies are given and in some cases, when patients need more fluids, infusion therapy can be used for hydration.

Infusion therapies may include treatment for:

  • Neurological disorders – Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Myasthenia Gravis (MG), Arterial Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and Neurosarcoidosis
  • Gastrointestinal disorders – Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis
  •  Immune globulin for immune deficiency syndromes
  • Iron replacement for anemia and iron deficiency
  • Blood products
  • Therapeutic phlebotomy

We offer infusion therapy treatments for many additional conditions as well as those listed above.

  • Heated recliners
