A new, women-only infusion center has been  officially opened at the Comprehensive Women’s Health Center at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford.

The six-chair facility was made possible through more than $150,000 in donations to the St. Francis Foundation by Traveler’s Championship, Big Y supermarkets, Chip In for a Cure and several private donors.

The Comprehensive Women’s Infusion Center offers women undergoing cancer treatment at the St. Francis/Mount Sinai Regional Cancer Center the serene, spa-like setting of the Comprehensive Women’s Health Center.

The new infusion center, located on the first floor of the CWHC in a fully renovated space, consists of two exam rooms for provider visits, six infusion bays, a nourishment station and patient education library. Patients will have the support of all services currently available in the Comprehensive Women’s Health Center including valet parking, integrative medicine, social worker support, and genetic counseling.
