Four treatment rooms, two hyperbaric chambers
WINCHESTER, Ky. (June 13, 2017) — Clark Regional Medical Center recently partnered with Wound Care Advantage (WCA) to open a new outpatient wound care and hyperbaric center. The center will feature a multi-disciplinary team of physicians to offer advanced wound care to the patients of Clark and its surrounding communities.
The new facility will have four treatment rooms to treat patients with chronic wounds associated with diabetes, venous insufficiency, osteomyelitis, immobility and delayed effects from radiation, among others. The center will also have two state of the art hyperbaric chambers to help wounds heal faster.
“During hyperbaric oxygen therapy a person is given 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized environment,” said Dr. Crystal Kincaid, one of the medical directors of the Center for Wound Care. “When you combine pressure and oxygen, the amount of oxygen in the blood stream increases which speeds up the healing process.”
The wound care staff and physicians work with the patient’s primary care physician to develop evidenced-based treatment plans focused on healing rates and patient satisfaction.
“The specialized care provided by an outpatient wound care center supports the ongoing care provided by a patient’s primary care physician,” said Mike Comer, CEO of WCA. “We build strong partnerships across the continuum of care to ensure the best possible outcome.”
