Physician Treatment Center

The Physician Treatment Center (PTC) at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) is a hospital-based, comprehensive outpatient department that offers a practical option for affiliated providers and their patients who have outpatient needs. Another option is the Outpatient Infusion Center at Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital.

Staff and services

The PTC staff has the skill and experience to care for a highly diverse range of patient needs. There are no staff providers housed in the PTC, however, affiliated providers can easily arrange care for their patients with little notice and many times avoid a costly and lengthy Emergency Department visit for non-emergent care. The PTC has private exam rooms with comfortable recliners and flat screen televisions, as well as two surgical suites for minor surgical procedures and consults. The experienced surgical techs are happy to meet the requests of providers with little notice.

The experienced PTC clinical nursing staff are skilled in:

  • IV medication administration
  • IV hydration
  • Biologic product administration
  • Transfusion therapy and management of central lines
