Infusion Center Spotlight: Birmingham ID & Infusion
NICA’s Infusion Center Spotlight aims to recognize the exemplary infusion providers who have supported NICA’s mission through membership. Provider members operate stand-alone infusion centers that improve patients’ access to high-quality and cost-effective care in the communities they serve.
Birmingham ID & Infusion is an innovative infectious disease practice and infusion center that treats multiple different chronic diseases led by expert disease specialists in Birmingham, Alabama.
History: After 24 years in private practice, Infectious Diseases physician Dr. William Lapidus’ dream of taking even better care of his patients finally came true. After many years in the management of hundreds of patients receiving IV antibiotics at home for their complicated infections, Dr. Lapidus, along with partners Dr. Anurag Gandhi and Dr. Eima Zaidi, founded Birmingham I.D. & Infusion (BID), the first free-standing infusion practice in Birmingham.
Since its founding in 2016, patients receive their antibiotics infusions (and now biologics as well) in eight very comfortable recliners, cared for by the most skillful and loving nurses who have provided far more than antibiotic therapy alone. The emotional support offered by the staff has contributed perhaps as much to their patients’ ultimate recovery and well-being as the medications.
Mission: Birmingham I.D. & Infusion is motivated by a desire to take care of their patients under their own roof, enabling them to more closely supervise the care of these patients, including the prompt troubleshooting of problems that inevitably arise.
