An extensive remodel to Gundersen Boscobel's Hospital Pharmacy brings enhanced chemotherapy treatment close to home. 

The $250,000 renovation, completed in November, enhances patient and staff safety and allows pharmacists to prepare chemotherapy in state-of-the-art sterile IV rooms.

"Gundersen Boscobel made chemotherapy treatment a priority in 2015 when we designated a room for our patients to receive chemotherapy," Gundersen Boscobel administrator Theresa Braudt said. "As the need for this service increased, so did the need to improve our facility. We are thankful we can provide the best possible technology for this important work."

Gundersen Boscobel can accept orders from care providers outside of the Gundersen Health System. 

"Patients who see oncologists outside of GHS will be asked to establish care with Dr. Marinier, the GHS oncologist who will oversee their care delivery in Boscobel," Care transition coordinator Cheryl Place said. "They can also continue to see their oncologist if they so choose."

The team in Boscobel can prepare non-chemotherapy IV medications with an order from any provider.

"If you are a patient needing specialized IV medications and you are driving hundreds of miles to a larger facility, you don't need to anymore," pharmacist Tara Wood said. "You can receive the same treatments here, saving time and money."

To learn more about how you can receive your specialty injectable medication and other outpatient services close to home, call Gundersen Boscobel at (608) 375-4112. More information is also available from Gundersen Boscobel's Care Transition Coordinator at (608) 375-6332.
