BCFS Health and Human Services offers a range of capabilities to help people through natural disasters, health crises, and other calamities. The organization specializes in medical sheltering and emergency management worldwide as part of a global system of nonprofits. In Texas, the organization is aiding the fight against COVID-19 by operating several monoclonal antibody infusion centers.
One of these centers, in Montgomery Country, has served more than 1,500 people with antibodies that boost their immune system to better ward off the worst effects of COVID-19. This center offers 30 beds that can accommodate six infusion sessions with 15 patients every day, giving it the capacity to help 90 Texans per day to stay healthy.
The Montgomery County Regional Infusion Center (RIC) at the Woodlands Diagnostic Clinic Building is in The Woodlands, Texas. Located in The Woodlands, Texas, the infusion center provides area residents with a convenient way to access treatment that may save their life. Monoclonal antibody infusions boost the body’s natural immune system and make it harder for the coronavirus’ spike protein to attach to human cells. It can lower the amount of damaging virus in a patient’s body, so a patient might have a much milder case instead of needing hospital care.
In addition to the Montgomery County RIC, BCFS Health and Human Services EMD operates five other centers in Bexar, Nueces, Travis, Webb, and Tarrant Counties, to ensure an optimal number of Texans can access these infusion treatments.
