Get the benefits of medical treatment without interrupting your daily life. You can receive the infusion therapy you need from the compassionate providers at Ballad Health while you stay close to home in Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and western North Carolina.
What Is Infusion Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy lets your health care provider deliver medicines or nutrition directly into a vein. Infusion therapy can be a good way to treat your health condition, especially if it’s hard for you to swallow pills.
Where Can I Receive Infusion Therapy?
Whether you need short-term or longterm infusion therapy, the specialists at Ballad Health can supply the medicines and services you need in a comfortable setting.
You might be able to stay in your home and get the medication you need through home infusion services provided by Ballad Health home health care. Receiving treatment at home sometimes helps you avoid being admitted to the hospital or lets you come home earlier after a hospital stay.
