Wound Care

The ACH Wound Care & Hyperbaric Department is a multidisciplinary outpatient clinic treating non-healing wounds and ostomies and offering an approach to healing that includes hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and biological skin equivalents.

Wound care refers to treatment of chronic or non-healing wounds that can be associated with infection of skin and bone, diabetes, radiation, arterial or venous disease and complicated post surgical sites. A chronic wound is classified as a wound that has little to no progress or worsens within a 30 day period.
