Four Benefits of In-Office Infusion Centers vs. Hospital Infusion Centers

Infusion therapy is a safe and effective way to treat many diseases. It is often used when a person is unable to take oral medications or when treating the disease requires an alternate approach. With infusion therapy, medication is administered using a sterile catheter inserted straight into a vein (intravenously) and secured.

Traditionally, infusion treatments were only available in hospitals, but now they’re available in outpatient infusion centers like Astera Infusion Therapy. We have five care centers located in communities across central New Jersey.

In-Office Infusion Centers vs. Hospital Infusion Centers

Here are four key benefits of choosing in-office infusion centers over hospital infusion centers for your infusion therapy:

  • Accessibility
    Visiting a smaller office for infusion therapy offers unique advantages like ease of parking, efficient processing and a hassle-free experience from beginning to end.
  • Location
    Community-based offices offer personalized care close to home with immediate access to medical personnel and resources.
  • Individualized care
    Infusion centers offer a smaller, more intimate setting for your care, and you’re on a first-name basis with everyone from receptionists to nurses and doctors.
  • Shorter wait times
    Infusion centers treat fewer patients each day, which allows us to take our time and fully understand your needs and concerns.
