We welcome you to NCH OPIS and are pleased to serve you. Our nursing staff consists of registered nurses, unit secretaries, and clinical technicians. Over 60% of our nurses are certified in either oncology or infusion therapy. These certifications complement our patient population nicely since we treat not only cancer patients but patients will a variety of infusion therapy needs.
We are proud to have two social workers on our team as well, who focus on pre-certifying your treatments and on obtaining medications for those with special circumstances.
We serve our patients on holidays and weekends on a limited basis at one of our campuses. These appointments are reserved for patients who must have daily or urgent treatments. Unfortunately, we cannot see patients on weekends strictly for convenience.
Our services include:
Chemotherapy administration and teaching for oncology patient care requirements that can be met with an ambulatory care setting.
Therapeutic and supportive care measures, including intravenous infusions such as antibiotics, blood transfusions, hydration, chemotherapy and monoclonal antibody therapy.
Insurance authorization review
Access to Breast Health Navigator and Palliative Care

Limitations of Service:
OPIS does not have an outpatient laboratory and cannot provide laboratory services. The only lab draws that can be done are those that are necessary for the specific treatments as identified above.
We will work to coordinate orders specific to your current treatment with your physician. However, we are not able to send those specific lab results, receive additional orders, or provide treatments outside of the current treatment plan or to non-ordering physicians. Certain regulations limit our ability to provide you with copies of those specific laboratory results. Your ordering physician will be able to provide you with the full array of results along with explanations of such. We encourage you to sign-up for the MyNCH Health Portal where you can retrieve your personal results. Our staff can direct you how to sign-up for this service.
