There will be reserved parking spots for Outpatient Infusion Center patients
Cookeville – The Outpatient Infusion Center at Cookeville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) has moved from its current location on the fifth floor to the first floor of the Professional Office Building (POB) at 145 W fourth Street, in Cookeville.
“The new location is more conveniently located to accommodate patients and their families who come in for infusion therapies,” said CRMC in a statement.
“We have patients who come in routinely to receive infusion services,” said Amy Rich, Chief Nursing Officer at CRMC. “The first floor of our Professional Office Building allows for easier and more convenient patient access to outpatient infusion therapies.”
Patients can now enter through the East Entrance next to the Emergency Department and check in with the door greeters who will direct them to the Professional Office Building entrance from there. There will be reserved parking spots for Outpatient Infusion Center patients located in the Emergency Department parking lot.
“We are excited to add reserved parking for our patients. While these spots won’t accommodate all our patients, the reserved spots will help to better serve patients and their families,” added Rich.
CRMC’s Outpatient Infusion Center staff is able to treat a variety of conditions that require infusion therapy including anemia, multiple sclerosis, IV antibiotics and more.
According to CRMC, the Outpatient Infusion Center does require a provider referral and is by appointment only. To learn more visit www.crmchealth.org.
