Cancer Care & Infusion Center

Allegan General Hospital (AGH) is a proud affiliate of West Michigan Cancer Center & Institute for Blood Disorders (WMCC) which has long been recognized as the region’s leader in oncology and hematology care. This partnership offers our patients access to evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and research studies close to home.

Under the supervision of Dr. Marcia Liepman, WMCC hematologist/oncologist, patients can receive infusions of chemotherapy and other outpatient medications in our infusion center. In addition, we can administer injections and transfusions of blood products. Eligible services are those that require administration by registered nurses in a hospital setting. Some insurance companies do require pre-authorization for these services.

Hours

Clinic hours are Mondays - Fridays from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Special arrangements are necessary for services which must be provided after hours and on weekends.  Our Cancer Care & Infusion Center suite features rockers, recliners, televisions, CD players, and accommodation of family schedules whenever possible.

Chemotherapy

Specially trained AGH Registered Nurses administer cancer fighting medications. Since 1976, Allegan General Hospital has offered skilled outpatient treatments for cancer patients. We offer not only treatment for cancer patients, but education to both the patient and their family.

Medications

AGH nurses administer immune system medications, steroids, “bone hardeners,” iron, antibiotics, blood count stimulants and others, as ordered by a physician. These medications require either a shot or an IV.

Transfusions

Physician ordered transfusions of blood and blood products are provided on an outpatient basis.

Radiation Therapy
Through our affiliation, patients requiring radiation therapy can be treated at WMCC’s main campus in Kalamazoo.
