COVID-19 Infusion Treatment

The City of El Paso’s COVID-19 Clinic located at 9341 Alameda has been identified as a Regional Infusion Center in partnership with the State of Texas Department of State Health Services. The RIC offers the monoclonal antibody infusion treatment to COVID-19 positive patients to minimize the risk of hospitalization.

The center is in addition to The Hospital of Providence (THOP) infusion center currently in operation.

The monoclonal antibody infusion treatment is used in patients who meet the following criteria:

Patients who qualify for the treatment receive a one-time intravenous (or IV) dose that takes about 1 hour to infuse. Patients will be required to wait an additional hour to monitor the reaction to the treatment.

Patients who have received a positive test result for COVID-19 can call the Texas Infusion Hotline for General Information and Assistance at 1-800-742-5990 to confirm they are eligible and schedule an appointment to receive the treatment. While a doctor's referral is not needed, patients can talk with their doctor or healthcare provider to determine if the infusion treatment is right for them.
