PHILIPPI — Broaddus Hospital has established a dedicated antibody infusion center for patients who have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Bamlanivimab is an antibody developed to neutralize the COVID-19 virus and help support the immune system as it fights off COVID-19. This infusion is meant for patients suffering from mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 and can reduce the need to be hospitalized.
This infusion can only be given with a physician order. If you have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 and meet certain criteria, contact your provider to see if you are eligible for this treatment. For more information about COVID-19 antibody infusion treatment please contact Lesa Corley at 304.457.8146.
