Beginning Oct. 6, the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center will offer Saturday infusion services to adult oncology and non-oncology patients. This new option will provide an additional resource and more flexibility to patients who prefer Saturday appointments. To start, 12 chairs will be available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the North Building and the number will grow as demand increases.
“Opening for six days a week allows us to meet the needs of our patients by avoiding unnecessary hospital admissions or trips to emergency rooms for chemotherapy, blood transfusions or hydration on the weekend,” said Kristin Mensonides, director of oncology services. “We look forward to welcoming patients with open arms!”
