The Wound Care Center
At The Wound Care Center, we specialize in advancing wound care with the coordinated use of a variety of clinical treatments, debridement, medicines, dressings and support services.
The Wound Care Center also provides hyperbaric oxygen treatment with two hyperbaric oxygen chambers. In hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the patient breathes 100% oxygen while enclosed in a pressurized chamber. The patient’s blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 15 to 20 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body’s tissues. This oxygen-rich blood allows the body’s natural wound-healing mechanisms to function more efficiently.
