Baptist Health opens Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center

Posted

FLEMING ISLAND – As part of an ongoing commitment to providing top-quality patient care, Baptist Clay has opened a Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center where healing is possible for even the most complex wounds.

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Baptist Clay provide comprehensive care to patients with chronic or acute wounds, foot ulcers, venous insufficiency, diabetic ulcers, wounds caused by radiation, trauma and more.

“It’s our goal to provide the community with all of the medical care they need in one place,” said Darin Roark, Baptist Clay hospital president. “Now, people with complicated wounds can get the care they need right here on our Fleming Island campus, so they can get back to doing the things they love.”

A team of professionals that includes hyperbaric and wound care specialists, podiatrists (foot care specialists), vascular and general surgeons, plastic reconstructive surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons work with patients to develop a personalized wound care program to restore them to optimum health as quickly as possible. The team has advanced training in wound care, including medications, dressings and state-of-the-art technologies such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Hyperbaric medicine works by delivering high levels of oxygen to the patient’s bloodstream in a pressurized environment. This increases the supply of oxygen delivered to the wounded tissue, stimulating new growth in blood vessels. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to enhance the healing process.

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Baptist Clay offer patients hope and healing through unparalleled education, treatment and follow-up care. Call (904) 202-4325 to schedule a consultation. The center is located at Baptist Clay, 1747 Baptist Clay Dr., on Fleming Island.
