Medication Infusions and Injections

Infusion treatment is medication administered through an IV. Since it’s infused directly into a vein, Infusion therapy reaches the bloodstream immediately and provides fast relief. Since it has to be administered on a regular basis patients have to return to medical facilities. That’s why Holton Community Hospital offers an outpatient infusion therapy center.

Prolia and Reclast – for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis
Orencia & Actemra – to treat arthritis
Remicade – to treat arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease and plaque psoriasis
Lovenox – to prevent blood clots
Neupogen and Neulasta – to treat low white blood cell counts associated with cancer treatment
IV Antibiotics

If you need a medication administered that is not on this list, have your medical provider call to see if Holton Community Hospital can offer the service. Many times we can accommodate the request!

Initiation of new medications must be scheduled for Monday-Friday, 7:30am – 3:30pm.
