MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 12, 2020
TwelveStone Health Partners, a leading provider of comprehensive chronic care medication services, announces the opening of a new infusion center serving the city of Knoxville and Knox County, Tennessee.
“We are so pleased to offer patients in Knoxville and surrounding communities the option to have an infusion done in a comfortable and convenient environment for complex medication regimes that can’t be administered at home,” says Shane Reeves, chief executive officer at TwelveStone. “We recognized the need for a broader and higher level of care for those living with chronic conditions.”
Along with MEDIpack, a packaged medication solution and home infusion and enteral services, the addition of ambulatory infusion centers supports the population of patients who require a higher level of care and closer medication oversight. The outpatient infusion suites allow TwelveStone to administer a broader array of medications with medical oversight. Also, the first infusion therapy dose of any medication is required to be managed in an outpatient setting so the procedure can be closely monitored by medical professionals.
Chris Beckman, MD, is the medical director for the TwelveStone Infusion Centers, a growing network that also includes locations in Chattanooga and the company’s headquarters in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The company intends to build additional locations within Tennessee in the near term.
Deena Cantrill, a nurse practitioner who has affiliations with local hospitals and practices including Leconte Medical Center, Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, and Thompson Oncology Group, will act as team lead at the center. The new location is right off of I-75 at Kingston Pike.
The new suites were designed with privacy and comfort in mind, while still providing all the benefits of a medically supervised, safe clinical environment. Entertainment such as TV and free wi-fi services are available. Infusion therapy appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“I’m delighted to join the TwelveStone team,” says Cantrill. “I’m looking forward to working in collaboration with our great local hospitals, specialty clinics, and post-acute facilities to bring these much-needed, patient-centric services to our area.”
