Mid-State Health Center opens an Infusion Center in Plymouth

Sep 20, 2018 | News

Plymouth, NH – Mid-State Health Center (“Mid-State”) is proud to announce the opening of a state of the art infusion center at its Plymouth location 101 Boulder Point Dr. The new infusion center will be open to everyone in the community by October 1, 2018. The infusion center will provide a range of non-oncology infusion services and injections in a convenient primary care office setting.

For Mid-State CEO Sharon Beaty it was an easy decision to open the infusion center. “We saw that utilization of infusion therapy is increasing, but there was not enough access in our region. In most settings, patients were paying too much out-of-pocket to receive their infusion therapy services. We found that we could provide infusion services at a fraction of the cost.”

Mid-State’s mission is to offer high-quality medical services to all, regardless of their ability to pay. “Mid-State already offers a large array of services including family medicine, behavioral health, substance use disorder treatment, and dental services. Adding infusion therapy will provide local access to a needed service and further our mission. Our infusion center will be the only primary care based infusion center in the county and will be instrumental in providing affordable infusion services in Grafton County and the North Country,” says Beaty.

Mid-State will partner with OI Infusion Services, a New Hampshire-based infusion center management company, to help offer these services to patients.  Beaty said, “Managing an infusion center is extremely complicated and different from Mid-State’s day-to-day workflow. For that reason, we partnered with the OI Infusion team to handle everything infusion-related.”

OI Infusion CEO Woody Baum said, “our mission is to help providers offer high-quality low-cost infusion therapy and help lower the cost of infusion therapy for patients. Mid-State shares our vision of what healthcare should look like, so partnering with them was a no-brainer. We are very excited to help Mid-State offer this necessary service to the Grafton County community”.

The new infusion center is scheduled to begin receiving patients in October conveniently located in Plymouth. It will feature comfortable massage chairs, personal televisions, tablets, and snacks.   For more information, call Mid-State’s Infusion Team at 603-238-3500.

Mid-State Health Center has announced that its newest primary care office in Lincoln, New Hampshire is now open. The clinic, located at 6 South Mountain Drive will provide top-notch, convenient, and affordable primary care options to the local area.

“We are overjoyed to open our new primary care site in Lincoln and expand our services in the area. This new clinic affords us the opportunity to provide Mid-State’s high-quality primary care services in an area that has, in the past, had limited healthcare services,” said Robert MacLeod, Chief Executive Officer at Mid-State Health Center.

Mid-State Lincoln is accepting patients of all ages and will offer primary care services such as physical examinations, immunizations, and diagnoses and treatment of illness and injuries. The clinic also offers care coordination with other healthcare providers, prescribing medication, and management of chronic conditions, providing a healthcare home model for its patients.

The new clinic is open Monday through Friday, and business hours can be found online at midstatehealth.org. To make an appointment, please call 603-536-4000.
