LIVONIA – On Tuesday, December 1, St. Mary Mercy Livonia opened a Bamlanivimab Infusion Clinic onsite. This clinic administers bamlanivimab to qualifying patients with COVID-19.
What is bamlanivimab?
Bamlanivimab is a new monoclonal antibody medicine used to treat COVID-19 in non-hospitalized adults and adolescents over 12 years of age. Qualifying patients generally have mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19, and are at high risk for developing severe COVID-19 symptoms or needing to be hospitalized. Bamlanivimab recently received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA.
Hours and Location
The Bamlanivimab Infusion Clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Qualifying patients should call Central Scheduling at 734-655-2961 to schedule their appointment.
To enter the Bamlanivimab Infusion Clinic, patients should enter the campus at the South Entrance on Levan Road and proceed to the back of the Emergency Center. They should drive past the ambulance bays, where parking will be designated next to the warehouse. Once patients arrive, they should call 745-655-2780, and a colleague will meet and escort them into the Bamlanivimab Infusion Center.
Colleagues or physicians who wish to reach the Bamlanivimab Infusion Center should call 734-655-2780. If you have any questions, please call Sarah Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Operations, or Nick Nickolopoulos, Chief Nursing Officer. We are excited to launch this new method for treating patients with COVID-19, and appreciate your support.
