Infusion services now offered at AHTV

Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley

Recognizing a need in the community for more care services close to home, Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley will begin offering infusion therapy.

Infusion therapy provides patients with medications through a needle or catheter when oral medications are not an option. It is often utilized by patients recovering from surgery, those on dialysis and those battling cancer.

“We recognize that patients undergoing infusion therapy often do not want to travel for care, and we’re proud to offer these services at our hospital so they can receive care closer to home,” said Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley Patient Care Executive Misty Cantrell. “Interested patients should ask their primary care physician about scheduling their infusion services locally at Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley.”

Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley’s infusion therapy will offer hydration, antibiotics and blood transfusions.
