ORLANDO, Fla., July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- IVX Health, a national healthcare provider of infusion and injection therapy for adult and pediatric patients with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis, and other complex chronic conditions, today announced the opening of two new infusion centers in the Orlando metropolitan area.
Conveniently located in Altamonte Springs and Waterford Lakes, IVX Health offers patients an alternative to hospital-based infusions – with the same high-quality standards and safety protocols. IVX Health reimagines the traditional experience for infusion patients with amenities such as evening and weekend appointments and guaranteed private suites that allow for proper social distancing – a meaningful benefit when considering the often hours-long infusion procedures. IVX Health is currently accepting new patients at its Altamonte Springs infusion center (by appointment only) and will begin accepting patients at its Waterford Lakes location this fall.
From its inception, IVX Health's mission has been to redefine the care experience for patients with complex chronic conditions. According to a new study published in Arthritis & Rheumatology, the number of people with these types of autoimmune diseases is on the rise in the United States, with tens of millions of Americans at risk—many of whom are young and active members of their community. Creating a safe, convenient option to receive the care they need is paramount to their ongoing health and well-being, especially amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stand-alone centers, no waiting rooms, private suites, and visits by appointment only are just a few of the ways IVX Health aspires to provide the safest possible experience for its patients. Each IVX Health center is staffed with a nurse practitioner and a team of registered nurses which never exceeds a 1:3 nurse-to-patient ratio, ensuring every patient receives the personal attention they deserve. In addition, IVX Health offers patients a superior level of service—with flat screen TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi, complimentary snacks, and flexible appointment times that include evenings and Saturdays.
"As a physician, my first priority is to help patients achieve the best possible clinical outcomes," said Dr. Nishant Patel, a pediatric gastroenterologist in the Orlando area. "For patients whose prescribed regimen includes ongoing treatment with specialty biologics, staying persistent on therapy is incredibly important. I'm excited that Orlando has a new, convenient option for both adult and pediatric patients that provides the type of compassionate and high-quality care that will help them stay adherent to therapy."
IVX Health currently has 25 centers operating across 10 metros in the United States. IVX Health's Altamonte Springs and Waterford Lakes infusion centers extend the company's footprint in Florida, with IVX Health opening four new centers in the Tampa market in 2020.
