Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center Adds Second Hyperbaric Chamber and Exceeds National Averages
In conjunction with their five-year anniversary, BID-Plymouth’s Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center (Wound Center) has added a second hyperbaric chamber. Since opening in 2010, the Wound Center has treated more than 2100 patients and more than 60 hyperbaric chamber patients.
Hyperbaric treatment is non-invasive and is used to deliver high concentrations of oxygen under pressure to damaged tissues in the body. It is used to treat many common conditions such as non-healing diabetic wounds, radiation damage and soft tissue and bone infections.
Lisa Crociati, 54, of Plymouth was a patient in the BID-Plymouth Wound Center and received hyperbaric treatment after an incision in her knee was delayed in healing. She was very happy with her experience. “The Wound Center is very clean and the staff there is kind, positive and very professional,” said Crociati. “I actually looked forward to going because of how nice and enjoyable the staff is. I would absolutely recommend BID-Plymouth’s Wound Center. They completely fixed me and put me back together.” After completing treatment at BID-Plymouth, Lisa is now actively up and walking.
“We are thrilled to add the second hyperbaric chamber and to increase the number of patients we are able to care for within our community,” said Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center Director, Lesley Cunningham, BSN. “Since opening in 2010, hyperbaric treatment has proven to be an integral part of the healing process for certain wounds and conditions that our patients experience.”
In a recent comparison through WoundExpert®, the largest independent source of comprehensive chronic wound data available in the U.S. healthcare market, BID-Plymouth exceeded the national average of days to heal.
