The Wound Healing Center is an outpatient, hospital-based program to provide treatment for problem wounds.  Patients are referred by their primary physician and the center operates by appointment.  Our facility provides the most advanced therapies and the latest clinical modalities to treat problem wounds. 

Studies have shown that specialized wound care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy:

  • Accelerate wound healing
  • Reduce amputation rates
  • Help patients avoid hospitalization and have an improved quality of life

The center features two state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) chambers, a treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. HBOT quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and assists in the healing process of wounds caused by diabetes, circulatory problems, and many other conditions.

HBOT is also effective in fighting certain types of infections, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels, improving circulation, and has also been used to treat crush injuries, osteomyelitis, skin grafts and flaps, and brown recluse spider bites.

In addition, the center provides valuable education to patients and caregivers to assist with wound management.
