Remedi SeniorCare, a growing pharmacy provider for long-term care facilities, has opened its first Michigan location in Plymouth.
Already serving more than 70,000 residents in 30 states, Remedi serves long-term care facilities, such as skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities, with a patented Paxit medication dosage packaging system that officials say combines innovation and technology to improve services for patients and care providers.
Remedi has expanded its geographical reach by opening a facility at 14700 Helm Court. Based in Baltimore, Md., the company celebrated Dec. 4 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Plymouth. Jeffrey M. Stamps, Remedi SeniorCare president and CEO and a registered pharmacist, said the company has the ability to provide institutional pharmacy services to more than half the nation.
“Paxit is in high demand among our current and prospective customers and we continue to expand to support that demand,” he said. “Remedi SeniorCare remains committed to our customer-focused approach and to expanding our geographic scope as an innovative and technology enabled pharmacy service provider.”
Remedi is billed as an industry innovator that is transforming the long-term care service model. As the exclusive provider of the Paxit medication administration system, officials say the company is providing cost-effective and highly accurate pharmacy “med pass” medicine-dispensing services to long-term care facilities.
The Plymouth location brings services closer to home for Michigan patients, who previously were served by other facilities, such as in Ohio. The Plymouth facility employs 45 people and is poised to hire more, such as certified pharmacy technicians.
“With the addition of brick and mortar in Plymouth, we are excited to expand our reach in that area,” Amanda King, director of marketing, said during a telephone interview.

On the assisted living front, company officials say Paxit technology is improving quality and continuity of care — a critical element, they say, in electronic health record-enabled communities.
“Paxit’s unique unit-dose packaging, organized by med pass time, increases accuracy, efficiency, and safety in the med pass process, while reducing waste and cost for our skilled nursing and assisted living customers, their residents and families,” Stamps said.
Officials say Remedi Senior Care’s local management team of registered pharmacists, including Dan Lohmeier, general manager, and Andrew Byrnes, pharmacist-in-charge, brings knowledge of the local market, having serviced the long-term care community in Michigan for decades.
“The combination of known pharmacy leaders and our state-of-the-art technology establishes the perfect platform for serving the Michigan assisted living and skilled nursing communities,” Lohmeier said. “Our customers have been waiting for Paxit and we are delivering on our promise.”
Through the Paxit dispensing system and proprietary MyRemedi web portal, the company serves more than 70,000 residents and, with its technology enabled pharmacy services, allows customers to achieve higher levels of accuracy and quality in medication delivery. Officials say it also reduces unnecessary waste and cost.
