Cancer & Infusion Center in Acadiana

Oncology and blood disorder treatment should not require travel arrangements. That’s why the Cancer & Infusion center at the Kid's Specialty Center, an outpatient treatment center located on the campus of Our Lady of Lourdes Women's & Children's Hospital, provides infusions, transfusions, injections and other related services for Acadiana’s women and children.

The nurses and staff have extensive training and experience in providing quality service to oncology and blood disorder patients. In addition, the Child Life Specialist Program provides age-appropriate approaches to help the littlest patients and their loved ones better understand procedures and treatment options. Treatment services include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Blood/blood products administration
  • IV solutions/medications
  • Injections
  • Hydration/fluids administration

Cancer & Infusion Center nurses conduct patient assessments prior to administering any medications and monitor symptoms and side effects during infusions. Call (337) 521-9500 to learn more.
