What is a Wound Care Center

A Wound Care Center specializes in treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, poor circulation and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.

That’s where the Wound Care Center at Harrington can help. With the state-of-art treatments available, including debridement, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place they can trust.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe and evidence-based treatment proven to speed the healing process in certain types of wounds. In fact, many patients find it relaxing! The clear chambers are equipped with televisions and comfortable bedding, so patients are free watch their favorite television shows or a movie, or even sleep. During the treatments, the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber, quickly increasing the concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream, where it is delivered to a patients wound site for faster healing. Essentially, HBOT therapy helps heal the wound from the inside out.
