The HQRX Experience
HealthQuest Infusion & Specialty (HQRX for shorthand) was founded in 2008 to serve the outpatient infusion therapy and specialty medication needs of patients in the Houston-area. With some of the most advanced care in the world for acute and chronic health conditions offered at the Texas Medical Center, we are proud to provide an accessible and cost effective supplement or alternative to long-term inpatient hospital stays.
HQRX provides patients and providers with an extensive selection of infusion therapy services, including the management of specialty medications and care coordination to provide you with a seamless healthcare experience specially tailored to your individual needs.
The HealthQuest infusion center is your Houston-area headquarters for infusion therapy and specialty medication. Receive your infusions on-site at our full-service ambulatory infusion center in Sugar Land or opt into our home infusion therapy for ongoing treatment in the comfort of your own space.
Have questions about prescriptions, treatments or cost? Talking with our skilled in-house team can save you the hassle of making multiple phone calls to physicians, pharmacies and insurance providers to get answers.
Before you’re discharged from the hospital, a HealthQuest team member will reach out to you to go over details. Some of the questions we’ll ask: Do you prefer your medication delivered to the hospital or to your home? From there, we will schedule delivery, providing you with an arrival time window to make sure you’re prepared. We know it can be stressful getting settled after a stay in the hospital.
Prior to discharge, you will also receive support from our team of clinicians and/or support staff who will provide patient and caregiver education and training.
The medication will be delivered to you and will be administered by an experienced infusion therapy nurse 24 hours after discharge. Prior to 24 hours, or if your prescription requires you to have a dose at home, you or the caregiver will then administer.
HealthQuest is not allowed to take medicine back once it has been dispensed, however discontinued/leftover specialty medications may be brought to a local pharmacy collection program or a hazardous waste collection for proper discarding.
You may ask your home health nurse if you can donate your leftover supplies to their agency or ask your local veterinarian or animal shelter if they can use any of the leftover supplies.
You should never pour unused liquid medications down the sink.
