About Our Infusions
About The IV Center Pittsburgh
The IV Center in Pittsburgh was opened in May of 2019 by Linda Slagel, a registered nurse with a passion for infusion nursing. With over 10 years of nursing experience Linda opened this center so that almost anyone can have a chance to benefit from IV therapy. Her expertise with IV insertion ensures a sanitary procedure using correct techniques and equipment. Making you relaxed and comfortable is her goal, which includes an almost painless procedure. She welcomes you to the clean and relaxing atmosphere of The IV Center where health is wealth. Whether you have a chronic illness that can be supported by nutritional IV therapy or you are suffering from a massive hangover, you can leave feeling better than when you walked in the door.
How to get an IV
The first step is to fill out your pre-IV questionnaire. This can be done in less than 5 minutes and ensures that no ingredients are contraindicated due to your specific health history. Our medical providers than review and write the prescription which is good for 12 months. Next you read through our menu and pick the IV that best suits your needs. Once you decide you can schedule your appointment for a time that is convenient for you. Most IV’s take approximately 45 minutes to infuse although, the Hydrate Drip takes approximately 75 minutes so plan accordingly. Next arrive at your scheduled appointment in our clean and comfortable IV lounge. Our Registered Nurse can go over any last-minute questions before the IV is inserted and the infusion begins. Recline, relax, and drip away!
About our IV Ingredients
The IV Center uses nutritional IV cocktails that are formulated to boost your health and wellbeing. Quality products are shipped from specialty pharmacies in the United States that are then used to make our infusions. We seek pharmacies that have a great reputation and supply high grade ingredients. Standard precautions and standard infusion procedures are strictly followed to safeguard our clients. No IV’s are pre-made, they are mixed when you arrive to ensure their integrity and to allow time for a last minute add in.

The IV Was Amazing!
The IV was amazing. I got the Hangover Drip. A long Friday night out with friends was not ideal for a productive Saturday. That was until I got the Hangover IV. I felt completely rejuvenated. I got all my energy and then some back. I highly recommend this for anyone going on a weekend with cocktails getaway.
A Significant Difference in My Mobility and Energy
Had the Energy Drip with addition of glutathione a week ago and have noticed a significant difference in my mobility and energy levels. The staff was great and explained everything to me and it was a very relaxing, comfortable environment. I highly recommend the Pittsburgh IV Center!

IV's have saved my life! They have helped me with energy issues and over all pain. The IV Center is a great place to relax and get recharged. Thanks for giving me my life back!
Sick and Tired No More
I used to get the flu shot and would still get sick. I've been getting IVs all winter and I think this is the first winter in 55 years I haven't got sick. I feel great and this is my new flu shot!
In order for us to administer an intravenous solution to you, we must require you to fill out our Medical Intake Survey, if you haven't already. The questionnaire will be submitted to our Medical Director for review, who will ultimately determine whether you are eligible to receive IV infusions based on the answers you provide. This only needs to be completed prior to your first IV, once filled out you won’t need to fill it out again. However if you fail to complete this survey, we will be unable to administer your IV infusion.
