Chemotherapy and Infusion Therapy

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs that kill cancer cells. Miami Valley Hospital provides patients with chemotherapy and infusion therapy services in a calm and welcoming environment. Most patients receive chemotherapy by mouth or through a vein.


Our staff usually administers chemotherapy in cycles. People receive treatment for one or more days. Then, they have a recovery period of several days or weeks before the next treatment session.

Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy provides you with fluid, blood or blood product, nutritional product or targeted therapies, directly into the bloodstream. Miami Valley Hospital’s highly-trained nursing staff skillfully administers intravenous drug therapy. When providing infusion therapy, Miami Valley Hospital pharmacists work closely with your physicians, nurses and dietitians to monitor your condition and adjust your treatment.

Our comprehensive infusion therapy services include:

  • Antibiotic treatment infusions
  • Blood transfusions
  • Chemotherapy
  • Intravenous hydration
  • IV therapy/injections
