Hospi Corporation improves quality of life by innovating practical, high impact medical devices that enhance patient comfort and wellbeing, ease caregiver burden, and reduce cost.
Hospi understands the needs of patients living with serious or terminal illness — and the caregivers who treat them. Our patient-centric focus is informed by a nursing perspective and has guided the development of Hospi’s first product, the Macy Catheter®, which has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is now available in the United States.
The Macy Catheter was invented by Hospi co-founder Brad Macy, a 20-year hospice nurse veteran, who leveraged his experience to address the need for a product to help improve patient comfort and wellbeing. The Macy Catheter is a simple, patented and innovative medical device designed to facilitate discreet and comfortable rectal administration of liquids or medications. The rectal route of administration is relevant, yet underutilized, in the hospice, palliative care and home health settings. It is particularly useful for management of symptoms when a patient has difficulty swallowing or the oral route is otherwise compromised.
At Hospi, we develop products that improve quality of life for patients and optimize the ability of caregivers to provide better care in a cost-effective manner.
