Cancer doesn’t care who you are.
At the infusion center at Valley View, we never forget that you are more than a patient with a condition. You have a name. You have a sense of humor. You have a unique source of strength. And we’re honored to accompany you on your journey.
“All the glory should go to the patients. The strength, faith and determination they have is amazing, and their fortitude, grace and resiliency never cease to amaze me.”
—Diane Heald, RN, BSN, OCN and facilitator of the Medical Oncology and Infusion
Our professional staff takes your care very personally.
Every nurse in the infusion center has been Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Certified by the Oncology Nursing Society. Several have also completed the advanced level certification required to become an Oncology Certified Nurse or OCN.
But even more important than the letters behind our names is the purpose behind our training. You are the reason we hold such a high bar — because we want you to feel confident and secure in our care.
Our infusion center combines cutting edge therapies with the comforts of home.
Whatever your cancer diagnosis, we are equipped to provide the infusion therapies you need. From chemotherapy to immunotherapy, we are well trained in a nearly infinite variety of infusion procedures.
“Entering the center is like getting a warm hug.”
—Patient at the Infusion Center at Valley View
Best of all, our high-tech medical treatments are delivered in a space that’s anything but institutional — views of the mountains are visible out nearly every window. As much as possible, we want to make the experience more like visiting a spa than visiting the hospital. And with this level of treatment in your own back yard, you don’t have to be a road warrior to battle your cancer.

Diane Heald RN, BSN, OCN
Facilitator Medical Oncology/Infusion
I’m a Colorado native, born and raised in Boulder. I have lived in the Roaring Fork Valley since 1993. I earned my nursing degree through Colorado Mountain College and have been an oncology nurse at Valley View Hospital since 2010. I am married and have two grown sons with whom I continue to have amazing adventures. It’s my passion to engage in the exciting array of outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. My patients and their families continually humble me; I consider it a gift to be part of their lives and their journey through cancer.
