BMC relocating community infusion service to Hillcrest
PITTSFIELD >> Faced with a growing number of patients in need of services, Berkshire Medical Center is relocating its community infusion service from its main campus to its Hillcrest Campus on Tor Court.
The move is expected to be completed by Monday. The community infusion service provides infusion treatments for a variety of non-cancerous conditions, including kidney and gastrointestinal disorders, arthritis, pregnancy, infection, anemia and other conditions.
The new unit at the BMC Cancer & Infusion Center is adjacent to the hematology oncology infusion area on the fourth floor. It will be located in a separate space to provide confidential and expert care for oncology and community infusion patients.
The number of patients requiring infusion treatments for these conditions has been growing, and this new unit is designed to accommodate the needs of patients now and in the future.
Many of the nursing and pharmacy staff from the current infusion center at BMC's main campus will continue to provide these services in the new location.
The BMC Cancer & Infusion Center at Hillcrest campus provides comprehensive services to cancer and infusion patients throughout the region.
