    BioScrip Announces PICC Placement Capabilities in Louisiana
    Infusion services company to provide a cost-effective and comfortable alternative to patients
     
    New Orleans, LA (November 29, 2018) – BioScrip Infusion Services, formerly CarePoint Partners (“BioScrip”), is pleased to announce that it is expanding its Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) placement capabilities into the New Orleans market. Already established as one of the only home infusion providers with PICC placement capabilities in Louisiana, BioScrip can now supply patients in the Crescent City with the alternative of placing a PICC in a conveniently located BioScrip infusion suite.
     
    “PICC placement at a BioScrip infusion suite provides a cost-effective and comfortable alternative to patients who might otherwise require in-patient services in the hospital,” said Area Vice President of Operations Kim Harvey. “By placing a PICC at one of our infusion suites, referring physicians will now have the option to shift their patients away from a hospital stay and toward their home with reduced costs and increased comfort for the patient.”
     
    With the introduction of PICC placement capabilities at two of its infusion suites in Louisiana, certified BioScrip team members are able to obtain frequent blood specimens and administer long-term intravenous (IV) antibiotics, specialty medications or nutrition therapy directly from the infusion suites.
     
    “At BioScrip, our team is dedicated to patient comfort and efficiency, making cutting-edge resources available in the local market,” Harvey said. “Physicians and patients can rest assured they are receiving very high levels of attention and service throughout the duration of their care.”
     
    Specializing in infusion therapy, BioScrip entered the Louisiana market in 2013 through the acquisition of CarePoint Partners, officially transitioning to BioScrip in 2017. Today, BioScrip is the market leader in its industry in Louisiana with a strategic focus on excellence and patient care, reporting some of the lowest re-admission rates in the industry. With 10 locations across Louisiana, BioScrip plans to expand its services in the New Orleans area, opening its newest state of the art facility on Jefferson Highway in late 2018.
