The Center for Wound Healing at Oswego Health officially opened July 19th with an open house and ribbon cutting.
The Center provides a multi-specialty team that includes a board-certified physician and nurses who possess extensive knowledge in wound care management. The Center offers comprehensive wound care treatment for patients suffering from chronic or non-healing wounds that have not healed after 30 days. A physician referral is not necessary for this service.
This outpatient service, located on the third floor of Oswego Hospital, includes four private treatment rooms and two hyperbaric chambers. The pressurized chambers allow a patient to breathe 100 percent oxygen, which stimulates many physiological responses in the cells and tissues, promoting wound healing.
Oswego Health is collaborating with Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services to bring this service to the community. Healogics and its affiliated companies manage nearly 800 Wound Care Centers® in the nation. Healogics utilizes an evidence-based systematic approach to chronic wound healing in treating an under served and growing patient population.
