Brazos County, TX -- A Regional Infusion Center to help treat COVID-19 patients in the Bryan/College Station area is now open to the public. The facility serves as an outpatient therapeutic treatment center for patients with a doctor’s referral.

The State of Texas through the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), in partnership with the Office of the Brazos County Judge, the City of College Station, the City of Bryan and St. Joseph Health, is opening the infusion center as an additional resource for treating COVID-19 patients.  It will include personnel, equipment, supplies and wraparound services for a 15-chair Regional Infusion Center.

The state-supported infusion center is located at 4411 Highway 6, College Station 77845.  The facility will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Medical professionals will be able to administer a monoclonal antibody treatment to up to approximately 45 patients per day.

The treatment is available at no cost to patients. Patients must be confirmed COVID-19 positive, within ten days of symptom onset, and have a referral from a primary care physician. The infusions are meant for COVID-19 patients who are not yet hospitalized or on oxygen supplements. 

These infusion centers, equipped with Regeneron's monoclonal antibodies, will treat COVID-19 patients with therapeutic drugs that can prevent their condition from worsening and requiring hospital care. These centers also help increase bed capacity in hospitals so that resources are available for the most ill patients. 

 

“I know from personal experience that Regeneron treatment can be effective in recovery from COVID-19, and I’m grateful the governor is making it readily available in Brazos County and this region,” said Brazos County Judge Duane Peters. 

 

Patients can contact the infusion center by calling 979-690-4478. Doctors can fax referrals to the infusion center at 979-731-5229.

The Regional Infusion Center in Bryan/College Station is the 22nd state-supported operational center in Texas. Texans can visit https://meds.tdem.texas.gov or call 1-800-742-5990 to find the nearest infusion center.
