JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
Brooke Army Medical Center officially opened its new Infusion Services Clinic with a ribbon cutting ceremony Jan. 8.
Infusion therapy involves the administration of drugs directly into the bloodstream to treat several medical conditions. It is a vital treatment option for many patients with chronic or complex conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Crohn’s disease.
“Infusion therapy is a growing capability within military medicine,” said Army Col. Mark Stackle, BAMC commander. “To have the ability to deliver this therapy here within the walls of BAMC really provides a lot more convenience for our patients. Until now, we had to send a large number of our patients downtown to get this service.”
