At the Saint Francis Memorial Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Infusion Center, we work closely with you and your neurologist to provide treatment and information that will help you lead a happier, healthier life.
Our infusion center is one of the only facilities dedicated exclusively to treating multiple sclerosis patients. The quiet and inviting three-chair center is equipped with soothing lighting, comfortable chairs, and a digital flat-screen TV to help you stay comfortable and relaxed during your infusion.
