If you and our medical oncologists decide that chemotherapy is the best course of treatment for your type of cancer, there are many different chemotherapy drugs available—and the number grows almost daily. They will choose the drug—or combination of drugs—that promises to be the most effective at treating your tumor, while minimizing the side effects as much as possible. You can choose to receive your chemotherapy treatments at our Cancer Center, the Connecticut Oncology Group, the Outpatient Infusion Center at the main hospital, or at your doctor’s office.
Outpatient Infusion Center
Located on the ground floor of Middlesex Hospital, the Outpatient Infusion Center (OIC) is part of the Hospital’s Cancer Center and is overseen by the Director of Inpatient Services. If you and your doctors decide that this is where you’ll receive your chemotherapy, you will set up appointments based on your treatment plan and schedule—then you will visit the OIC to undergo treatments on an outpatient basis. During your visits, a certified chemotherapy nurse will administer your chemotherapy, and they will also provide you with education about your specific type of cancer and information about managing your symptoms.
