Pediatric Infusion Center
The pediatric infusion center is now located in the expanded UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Infusion therapy is administered to infants, children and adolescents who require either one-time or ongoing IV therapy for a variety of acute and chronic illnesses including cancer, blood or genetic disorders, gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders. Infusion center staff members also perform blood draws and manage centrally placed catheters.
The outpatient infusion center is staffed by registered nurses, medical assistants and support staff. Many of the registered nurses carry nationally recognized certifications in pediatric oncology.
The center’s spacious and open area allows nurses to provide care for their patients in a relaxed and fun environment. Keaton’s Korner provides children with a safe, stress-free area where children can relax, read, watch movies or play video games during their visits.
We encourage one adult caregiver to remain with their child during their treatment, allowing us to teach and support family-centered care. Treatment times will vary, from as little as 15 minutes up to eight hours. Our center operates Monday through Friday. Visits to the pediatric infusion center can help eliminate the need for hospitalization and unnecessary stress for patients and their families.
A beautiful outdoor courtyard and spacious waiting area and lobby provide space for waiting family members outside of the infusion center. Vending machines with snacks are available on the center’s first floor.
The Comprehensive Cancer Center provides hematology and oncology appointments, pharmacy, laboratory and infusion services under one roof. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and convenient environment that meets your medical needs. We encourage you to talk with your health-care provider about scheduling an appointment for medical services.
