Greater Nebraska Home Infusion is a family owned and operated business in Grand Island, Nebraska. Rick and Cindy Lobeda have been servicing patients in the central Nebraska area since 2008 as owners and operators of Midwest LTC Pharmacy.
Through hard work and extensive conversations with health professionals of the area, they recognized a need for Home Infusion services. Patients in the greater Nebraska area did not have many options for infusion therapy. Most patients were having to stay in the hospital for extended periods of time or returning to the hospital every time they needed treatment which is time consuming and expensive.
So they decided to do something about it by building from the ground up with staff, accreditations, insurance contracts, clean room standards, and most importantly, the patients.
Our staff has an incredible passion for what they do and with over 68 years of combined experience exclusively in the Home Infusion industry, patients across all of Nebraska are taken care of with the precision, efficiency, and respect.
