Many patients like the convenience of infusion treatments in the comfort of their own home. If you prefer and your insurance allows, the Froedtert Infusion Therapy team can come to your home to administer your treatment.

Home infusion has been around for over 40 years, as many conditions requiring these therapies don't require that you be at a hospital. Home infusion allows you to receive care where it is most comfortable and convenient for you. It also reduces your risk of hospital-associated injury or infection.

If you choose home infusion therapy, our team meets with you before you leave the hospital or clinic. We will go over how you will receive your medication and what to expect when receiving home infusion. We also provide written instructions, and a pharmacy team member is available 24 hours a day in case you need assistance. Before you start home infusion, our team will contact you to set up an in-home visit to teach you and your caregiver about the equipment and therapy you will use.

Home infusion service area, including our infusion suites in Menomonee Falls, Oak Creek, Waukesha and Wauwatosa.

Our team includes registered nurses and pharmacists who help coordinate care with your doctor and care team. We will send you the medication and supplies you need before the visit. Our staff will work closely with you and your doctor to help manage your care and medications during therapy.
