Ashley Regional Medical Center Opens New Infusion Center
Phase two of the hospital’s $35M expansion and renovation project now complete
Vernal, Utah (June 27, 2018) – Ashley Regional Medical Center (ARMC) today announced the opening of its new Infusion Center, which will begin seeing patients immediately. This announcement comes on the heels of the grand opening of ARMC’s Women’s Center last month and marks the completion of phase two of a $35 million expansion and renovation project at the hospital. The multi-phase initiative is made possible by a capital investment from LifePoint Health and is expected to be fully completed later this year.
“We are thrilled to unveil our new infusion center and cross the finish line on the second phase of our significant hospital expansion and renovation project,” said Benjamin Cluff, chief executive officer of ARMC. “Like every initiative we undertake, this new Center was designed with the patient in mind and will help enhance the level of quality care and services available close to home for the residents of Uintah County.”
Staffed by a specially trained clinical team, the Ashley Regional Infusion Center provides a range of both intravenous (IV) and injectable treatments and therapies. These include IV fluids for hydration, steroid injections, arthritis medications, blood transfusions, iron and magnesium, and more. The facility features six infusion bays and three private chemotherapy rooms, and is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m, -seven days a week.
