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.
