The new Medical Infusion Unit at Monash Medical Centre is complete after the relocation of the final five chairs into the space.
The new, bright, spacious unit was opened in July 2020, but due to COVID space restrictions some of the infusion chairs had to remain in the Level 5 Infusion Centre.
With the relocation of the final five chairs into the space in February, all ambulatory infusion and chemotherapy services at Monash Medical Centre have been consolidated at the new unit.
Carolyn Greely, Nurse Manager of the Medical Infusion Unit, said bringing all the treatment into one space is a milestone for Monash Health.
“We have seen an increased demand for infusion services over the years, so it was important to boost capacity while also improving the location, accessibility, and physical features of our treatment space,” Carolyn said. “We’re extremely happy that we’ve been able to deliver all of this for our patients.”
