Monday, Feb. 7, will mark the opening of the newly renovated Noyes Infusion Center.

This new six-chair, private suite unit will accommodate patients in a newly renovated area that boasts an environment of comfort with state-of-the-art technology.

“The Infusion Center renovation is part of Noyes’ ongoing commitment to providing our community with access to first-rate care facilities,” said John Lockhart, Noyes Memorial Hospital Board of Directors President.

Tamara West, Director of Acute Care Services at Noyes added, “We are excited about the opportunity to offer a spacious environment where patients will feel more comfortable throughout the treatment process.”  

The Noyes Auxiliary recognized the need to expand the Infusion Center in early 2010. Since then, the volunteer-base organization raised $50,000 to renovate the space and provide new treatment chairs with heat and massage capability.

“The Auxiliary is proud to be a part of such a wonderful change at Noyes,” said Bonita Sisak, President of the Auxiliary. “The new Infusion Unit has long been a need at Noyes. We are very happy to provide our donation toward such an important patient care.”

One of the chairs was donated in memory of Kevin P. Quinlan of Avon, by his family. Mr. Quinlan received treatment at the Center.

The Infusion Unit is located on the third floor, separated from the medical surgical unit, in the space that was formerly the Intensive Care Unit.  It is close to the elevator, which is more convenient for patients receiving the treatments.

There will be a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Feb. 7, at noon in the Infusion Center. Past and present patients of the Infusion Center and the public are invited to the unveiling. Light refreshments will be provided after the ceremony.
