Outpatient Infusion Center
About the New Infusion Center at Westchester Medical Center
Westchester Medical Center’s new 5,300-square-foot outpatient Infusion Center will provide medical oncology care including consultation, evaluation and management of patients and the administration of chemotherapy and biotherapy for patients referred to the Infusion Center. Other infusion therapies, medications and blood and blood products will also be administered in the Infusion Center.
Located adjacent to many other outpatient programs and services at Suite 2300, 19 Bradhurst Avenue in Hawthorne, NY the new Center has:
- the capability to treat up to 12 patients at a time
- 10 private cubicles
- a private room
All treatment areas are within view of the Nurses’ Station and equipped with recliners and televisions.
The Center is juxtaposed to Westchester Medical Center’s hematotherapy center where each year 5,000 transfusions and special procedures are performed for both adults and children.
A Unique Partnership
The opening of Westchester Medical Center’s new Infusion Center ushers in a unique partnership with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, whose staff will provide outpatient cancer care and infusion services. Under the service agreement, Memorial Sloan Kettering will provide clinical services as well as broad day-to-day oversight and staffing for the program.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Regional Network provides outpatient cancer care at suburban locations in New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester, including Sleepy Hollow and a facility under construction in Harrison, which will involve further collaborative initiatives between Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Westchester Medical Center when it opens.
Who We Are
The new Infusion Center is under the direction of Medical Director, Michael Fanucchi, M.D., who is also a medical oncologist on staff at both Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Westchester Medical Center. Dr. Fanucchi trained at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and has held senior leadership positions in cancer centers at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, and St. Vincent’s Medical Center in New York.
The Infusion Center will have a total of nine staff from Memorial Sloan-Kettering including a nurse manager, three oncology nurses and three pharmacists. Patients treated at the new facility will remain patients of Westchester Medical Center.
