Ambulatory infusion center to open
JENKINTOWN » The Infusion Center of Pennsylvania LLC (ICPA), Southeastern Pennsylvania’s only ambulatory infusion center with a medical doctor and pharmacist on staff and open 365 days a year, announced the opening of a new center in Jenkintown.
It is the center’s second location; ICPA’s flagship center is located in Royersford.
The center is scheduled to open on July 30 in Jenkintown Plaza, 101 Greenwood Ave., Suite 635, Jenkintown, directly across from the Jenkintown/Wyncote SEPTA station.
The 4,000-square-foot space has capacity to serve seven patients simultaneously.
“We are excited to bring the comfort and convenience of our seven-daya-week infusion service to Jenkintown so patients no longer have to turn to a hospital emergency room for their maintenance infusion,” said Emma Singh, M.D., founder and medical director of ICPA. “As insurance companies increasingly work to reduce costs, routine but critical daily infusions are being pushed to facilities such as ours, and we are proud to be the only center in the region with a medical doctor on staff and open every day — a necessity for patients who must receive their medication daily for a week or more.”
The Jenkintown location will be able to treat patients covered by Medicare as well as by commercial insurance, while ICPA’s in-house medical doctor and pharmacist ensure accuracy, according to ICPA.
ICPA administers IV antibiotics, immunoglobulin and specialty medications like Radicava, Lemtrada, Occrevus, Tysabri, Remicade, Stelara and Xolair for conditions including multiple sclerosis and ALS, Crohn’s and colitis, psoriatic arthritis, asthma and emphysema.
“The Jenkintown expansion is the first step in our commitment to expand ICPA’s presence throughout the region and make high-quality infusion therapy readily available to more and more people throughout our region, including those on Medicare and those needing seven-day-aweek treatment,” Singh said.
The ICPA Jenkintown location will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon with medical staff oncall around the clock at 610495-6800.
