King’s Daughters Medical Center – IV Therapy Clinic

At King’s Daughters IV Therapy Clinic, we offer Infusion Therapy services that are safe, effective and convenient. Advances in biotechnology, equipment and medicine have made iv infusion possible, which allows medicine to be injected directly into the bloodstream.

Outpatient intravenous therapy services are available for a variety of needs including rheumatology, neurology, oncology, hematology, and infectious disease management. Our newly renovated infusion area is conveniently located on the first floor of the hospital.

At KDMC, we listened and heard the need for infusion services in our community. “People were driving to Jackson for treatments,” said KDMC Chief Nursing Officer Cheri Walker, R.N. “Some of these patients need infusion three times a week or even every day. Driving to Jackson for treatment was just simply too much.” The hospital dedicated a space and a full-time nurse to the infusion center, conveniently located on the first floor of the hospital. The area is a quiet room with recliner chairs and a TV so patients can relax as much as possible while receiving treatment. Chemotherapy is currently not offered at the center, but infusions for multiple sclerosis (MS) and osteoporosis and intravenous antibiotics are commonly administered. One patient, Howard Williams, currently receives infusions for MS. “Before the clinic opened at KDMC, I had to take off work and use my vacation and personal days to drive to Pearl and receive treatment,” he said. “Now I go when I get off work on Friday, and I don’t have to take any time off. It works out just great.”

Only 251 of 3,553 hospitals nationally earned CMS’s Five-Star top rating and King’s Daughters IV Therapy Clinic is one of them. The study was performed by Hospital Compare, an organization created through the efforts of CMS and it uses a variety of tools to help stimulate and support improvements in the quality of care delivered by hospitals.

Service comes about in unique ways.

On an otherwise nondescript trip to New York in 1886 aboard a ship leaving Europe, a young seminary student died. His death could have easily been forgotten – a nameless face on an endless sea – had it not been for Mrs. Margaret Bottome.

Having just met the young man, the aloneness of his death without a mother beside him stirred her soul. Greatly moved, Mrs. Bottome began the process that would ultimately result in the formation of the International Order of the King’s Daughters and Sons. Its headquarters are now located in Chautauqua, NY.

Mrs. Bottome poignantly described the effect of the young man in the Ladies Home Journal. “As I paced the deck in the days that followed {his death} and looked up at the boat that swung day after day with his body in it, as if he was being rocked to sleep, the thought came to me, oh, if I had only been in a sisterhood wearing a badge that would have denoted service to humanity… At that hour I wished for a sisterhood that should not be known by any distinct dress but by some kind of badge.”

On January 13, 1886, ten founding members chose the silver Maltese cross as their badge. They selected the watchword In His Name and the text Not to be ministered unto, but to minister.
