Home IV Therapy (Home Infusion)
Athens Regional Home Infusion Services operates as a retail pharmacy for intravenous therapy in the home. The pharmacy provides IV antibiotics, total parenteral nutrition, corticosteroids, chemotherapy, fluid therapy and other intermittent infusions ordered by a patient's physician.
Our courteous and trained professionals work toward the highest standards in medication preparation and mixing to assure it arrives at the patient's home uncompromised.
A patient does not have to be admitted to Athens Regional Home Health to benefit from the services of the home infusion pharmacy, but the coordination of care is much improved by also choosing Athens Regional Home Health.

Skip Lynch, RPh
Home Infusion Pharmacy Manager
When Athens Regional Medical Center made the decision in 1999 to establish Athens Regional Home Infusion Pharmacy, Skip Lynch was hired to lead the initiative. Since then, Skip has been instrumental in providing quality care and service to our patients, families and caregivers, their physicians and referral sources. His tireless commitment to excellence offers patients and their physicians a level of comfort and assurance that medication will be compounded and delivered safely, accurately and on time, allowing patients to stay at home while receiving intravenous therapies such as antibiotics, immune therapies or other parenteral and enteral therapies.
Under Skip’s leadership, the agency continues to grow and provide services and benefits to patients, physicians and the community. This past year, a specialty pharmacy service was added, allowing patients to obtain much needed high-cost drugs locally at reasonable prices. His medication knowledge and the consultative services provided to the staff and patients of the affiliated Athens Regional Home Health agency is an added benefit not readily available to patients of other home health agencies.
Skip graduated from the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Pharmacy. He has more than 22 years experience as a pharmacist. In his spare time, Skip enjoys hiking, spin class, cycling, motorcycling and terrorizing nurses. Anyone who knows him understands he has a heart as big as the universe and that his commitment to service excellence is equally as large.
