We are Local Infusion.

Local Infusion is a venture-backed healthcare company shaping the way care is delivered to patients with chronic autoimmune disease on specialty infusion medications. We have locations in New Hampshire and Maine and now Connecticut, with more on the way. Our focus on patient experience, technology, and clinical integration allows us to deliver a differentiated care model that leads to lower costs for patients and enhanced outcomes. Through a blend of patient-centered design and a people-first team culture, Local Infusion puts the "local feel" of community, comfort and connection back into the patient and provider experience. At our care centers, all patients—and our team—can feel truly supported, every step of the way.
