Infusion Therapy

Several agencies have partnered with Cook Children’s Medical Center to create a state-funded Regional Infusion Center in Fort Worth. This site will accept patient referrals from healthcare providers to help administer COVID therapeutics quickly and safely with the goal of preventing patients from needing hospitalization.

It is strongly recommended that patients visit a physician to see if they are eligible for the treatment and have their physician submit the referral form to the Regional Infusion Center to schedule an appointment. 

The Regional Infusion Center utilizes the monoclonal antibody treatment Regeneron.

This is a state-funded operation. The center is at 815 Eighth Ave. in Fort Worth. Operating hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week.
