This center is where RPCI outpatients receive chemotherapy, blood products or other treatments that require an infusion or injection. Treatment sessions may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 10 hours, depending on the specific drugs involved, their dose and how they must be administered. Treatments that take longer than 10 hours are provided through an inpatient area of the hospital, or at your home.
The CIC is an important component of cancer treatment for many RPCI patients. Staffed by highly skilled nurses with special training in chemotherapy administration, the care team will ensure you receive the specified treatment written by your physician. Please feel free to ask any questions about your treatment or other concerns.
Construction of the new 11-story Clinical Sciences Center next door is underway and progressing rapidly. This building will house a new state-of-the-art Chemotherapy Infusion Center where we will be able to care for more patients, more efficiently, and more comfortably.
