Destination Medical Center (DMC) and the City of Rochester announced the distribution of $100,000 in funding to 55 Rochester businesses through the Keep It Local, COVID-19 Innovators Grant Program. The grant program assists small businesses that were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are working with other small business to respond to those challenges.
Rochester Home Infusion (RHI) serves a unique niche in the pharmacy market, providing individually compounded medicines to patients with ongoing intravenous (IV) therapy needs, but who are well enough to go home.
RHI is also unique in that it is one of the earliest medical businesses that chose to set its roots in downtown Rochester specifically because of DMC’s vision to coin Rochester as America’s City for Health.
“We provide patients with IV medications in the comfort of their own homes,” Joselyn Raymundo, founder and president of Rochester Home Infusion (RHI), tells Destination Medical Center (DMC) in an interview.
Home infusion has been around since the 1980s. It is safe, effective, and, according to Raymundo, preferred by most patients. “People tend to recover faster when they are at home with the support of their loved ones. And going home allows them to return to work or school and resume their normal lives” she says.
