Infusion Center

The Infusion Center at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center was designed with the patients’ needs in mind. It offers a convenient location where patients can receive chemotherapy treatments in a safe, comfortable environment.

The Infusion Center is located on the first floor of the hospital near the main entrance. Patients receive their infusion in a cozy recliner and may watch movies, listen to music, read and most importantly, relax.
