LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - A new and expanded infusion center is being set up at Laredo Medical Center.

Today’s ribbon-cutting ceremony symbolized the opening of the new relocated center to a larger space at the hospital’s main campus.

Hospital officials say that the new location will provide patients a more comfortable and convenient outpatient setting.

They say it was well worth the wait and money.

“It was about a half a million-dollar investment. It increased from twelve rooms to eighteen rooms, so 50% capacity. It gives us access to forty patients daily, or even more if we push, or if the treatments are different. But it really is a good day for us here,” LMC Chief Executive Officer Jorge Leal told us.

The first infusion center opened up in 2015.

Officials say that since then, they have seen the need to expand.

A local medical center is unveiling its newest facility today.

On Monday morning, LMC will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new Infusion center.

The center has been relocated to a larger space at the hospitals main campus to provide patients in a more comfortable and convenient outpatient setting for those who require chemotherapy and hydration therapy as well as other infusion services provided by nurses.

LMC says their goal is to serve more patients and provide the community with chemotherapy infusion services that are second to none in our region.

The ceremony will take place on Monday at 10:30 a.m. at LMC, tower A second floor.
