The infusion center is an innovative alternative to long waits in cold, impersonal hospitals. It is a place where patients can receive intravenous infusions in a safe, professional environment. We offer Remicade, Orencia, Actemra, Rituxan, and Reclast infusions. Our goal is to make patients comfortable while providing caring, customized treatments. The staff maintains close coordination and communication with the physician throughout the prescribed course of treatment. Located in the newly renovated historical Gryphon building in downtown Joplin, Missouri, the treatments are given in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. During this time you can relax in our plush recliners, read a book, catch up on some work, watch t.v, check your e-mail, or take a nice nap. So, put your feet up and enjoy your time with us.
