The Hannibal Regional Medical Group is excited to announce the opening of the new Infusion Center! Our Infusion Center offers patients an easy, attractive alternative to a hospital setting for receiving their infusion therapy. It will help simplify and expedite the process while providing the highest-quality care and treatment. We provide patients and their families comprehensive infusion services in a comfortable, private setting, delivered by friendly, caring staff.
The Infusion Center is headed by Kristen Strasser, MD. Dr. Strasser provides consultation and treatment for benign and malignant blood disorders as well as all cancers. “I chose this profession because I have a passion for cancer patients and I have a special interest in guiding patients and their families through the diagnosis and treatment of cancer,” stated Dr. Strasser. “Patients may be interested in seeing me for a patient-centered approach and easy-going nature.” As an oncologist, she is specially trained in diagnosing and treating cancer using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy and targeted therapy. “It is a privilege to join Hannibal Regional Medical Group and I look forward to being able to help our community,” says Dr. Strasser. “I remain committed to furthering cancer research and working with local surgeons, physicians and cancer experts in our region.”
The Infusion Center services are provided by our specially trained oncology nurses, experts in managing all types of infusion, including:
- Biological immune modulators
- Hematologic growth factors
- Injectable hormonal therapy
- IV bisphosphonates
