BMC Opens New Community Infusion Service at Hillcrest Campus

PITTSFIELD — Berkshire Medical Center announced that its Community Infusion Service, which provides infusion treatments for patients with a variety of illnesses and conditions, will be relocating to newly renovated, state-of-the-art space at the BMC Cancer & Infusion Center. Currently, Community Infusion Services are provided at the main campus of BMC.

The new unit at the BMC Cancer & Infusion Center will be built adjacent to the Hematology Oncology Infusion area on the fourth floor, and will be a separate space in order to provide confidential and expert care for Oncology and Community Infusion patients. The move is expected to be completed by Monday, Sept. 19.

Community Infusion patients receive infusion treatments for non-cancerous conditions, including kidney and gastrointestinal disorders, arthritis, pregnancy, infections, anemia, and other conditions. The number of patients requiring infusion treatment for these conditions has been growing, and this new unit is designed to accommodate the needs of patients now and in the future.

The new, 12-chair unit will provide Community Infusion patients with an easily accessible location, convenient parking, and a comfortable and picturesque setting at the Hillcrest Campus of BMC.

Many of the nursing and pharmacy staff from the current Infusion Center at BMC will continue to provide these services in the new location.

The BMC Cancer & Infusion Center at the Hillcrest Campus of BMC provides comprehensive services to cancer and infusion patients throughout the region.
