Infusion Therapy

Grundy County Memorial Hospital provides a safe and comfortable outpatient setting for infusion therapy. The service allows those who have been prescribed an injection or IV administration for any of a wide variety of medications to stay close to home for their care.

Infusions are offered in a private, comfortable and sterile environment. Infusion medications are prepared, or compounded, in the hospital’s IV “clean room” by licensed and certified pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

The following health conditions and medications are among those for which sterile infusion treatments can be scheduled at GCMH:

  • IV administration of antibiotics
  • IVIG (intravenous immune globulin)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Dehydration and nausea
  • Crohn’s disease and other gastroenterology disorders
  • Iron infusions for anemias
  • Various medications to treat complications from chronic kidney disease
  • Anti-rejection medications after organ transplant
  • Multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases
  • Immunotherapy, biologics and supportive medications for those with various cancers (chemotherapy treatments are not administered through the hospital’s Infusion Services)

Questions on whether specific medications can be administered at GCMH may be directed to hospital pharmacist Ariel Loring at 319-824-4164 or
