VA medical center holding open house for Hematology-Oncology Infusion Center

By Julie Baker

The VA Ann Arbor Medical Center will hold an open house for its Hematology-Oncology Infusion Center on Monday.

The open house is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the medical center at 2215 Fuller Road, Ann Arbor.

Infusion therapy is a type of treatment in which medications or other treatment agents are delivered directly into the body via a vein. This type of therapy is used when oral therapy would not be practical, safe or effective, according to a news release.

The open house will highlight the features of the $763,000 project, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Features include 16 patient treatment chairs with heat and massage features, large Omni Cell with medications, supplies and refrigeration, as well as two exam rooms for simultaneous bone marrow biopsies and patient exams.

Rep. Tim Walberg is coming. He's the same GOP member who opposed the stimulus and beat Mark Schauer be denigrating him for voting for it. Good to see that Tim is so intellectually honest that he's now coming to celebrate this project. What a hypocrite.
