Oncology and blood disorder treatment should not require travel arrangements.

cancer and infusion centerThat’s why Women's & Children's Hospital recently opened The Cancer & Infusion Center, a place where women and children receive the infusions, transfusions, injections and other related services they need here in the heart of Acadiana.

“Cancer and blood disorders are not new to Acadiana, but the convenience of having an infusion center dedicated to treating women and children close to home is,” said Dr. Ammar Morad, pediatric hematologist/oncologist with the Kids Specialty Center at Women's & Children's Hospital.

The Cancer & Infusion Center, under the medical direction of Dr. Morad and doctors with Louisiana Oncology Associates, is an outpatient infusion center offering a compassionate and comforting environment. This state-of-the-art center features three adult infusion bays and, on the pediatric side, five infusion bays with two additional infusion bays that offer more privacy, if needed. Each bay features a comfortable chair, television and other amenities.
