Infusion Information and Instructions

Welcome to the DAC infusion center.  At the Denver Arthritis Clinic, we have three state of the art Infusion Centers, located at both our Lowry and Lone Tree locations.   At the Infusion Center, you will find the newest and promising treatments and therapies for numerous Rheumatologic conditions.  We also provide therapies for Gastro-Intestinal Diseases, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoporosis, Dermatologic and Auto-Immune Diseases.  Each location has first floor access, with a 3:1 Registered Nurse ratio.  The Centers are well equipped with oversized recliners, wireless internet, healthy snacks and beverages. 

We want your experience to be a positive one and we think you will find our staff and facilities pleasant, friendly and accommodating.

Our professional nurses are experienced, knowledgeable and work hard to give the best care possible.  The rooms are equipped with reclining chairs and although we do not have private rooms, we think you will find the atmosphere comfortable and relaxing.  Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate family or friends as our chairs are reserved for patients only.

 Our highly trained registered infusion nurses administer proven intravenous medications, including: 

  • Actemra, Remicade, Orencia and Rituxan – revolutionary new treatments for rheumatoid arthritis
  • ReClast and Boniva - for severe osteoporosis
  • Solumedrol - IV steroid for lupus and vasculitis


These infusions are covered by most insurance companies, including Medicare.

We offer bottled water and snacks while you are getting your infusions and you are welcome to bring a lunch or snack if you need to.  We do also provide free WIFI.

We do ask that you not talk on your phone while you are in the infusion center out of respect for other patients.
