What to Expect During Your Visit

You may see your pediatric specialty provider during your stay in the infusion area, or this may be a separate visit for infusion services only.  The Pediatric Infusion team works with all the pediatric specialties, and there are providers available to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your visit.

Treatment times will vary depending on type of treatment. In general, treatments may take anywhere from as little as 30 minutes to up to eight hours.

We encourage one adult caregiver to stay with their child during treatment so we can offer teaching opportunities and support services.
