Our state-of-the-art Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at GRMC treats patients of all ages with various types of chronic wounds and/or non-healing wounds. The highly trained and specialized physicians at the Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine Center provide wound care service and treatment, while assisting patients in identifying undiagnosed diseases that may affect their healing process, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
As a chronic wound care hospital, physicians will also evaluate the patient’s wound and overall health in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. With the help of their primary physicians, patients can learn to make positive changes in their lives that can improve their health in the future.

Types of Treatment
The Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine Center staff utilizes the latest treatment technology and advancements in products and cures. Some of these advanced techniques include:
- TCPO2 Technology – TCPO2 technology is a noninvasive procedure measuring the amount of oxygen the patient’s body is able to deliver to the wound or limb area, providing information about the potential for healing and how to proceed with treatment.
- VAC Therapy – VAC Therapy promotes healing through Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). This is a controlled application delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) to the wound, which assists in removing infectious materials and stimulates cell and tissue growth.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen – It is a fact all cells, tissues and organs need oxygen to function. In a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, a patient is exposed to 100% pure oxygen. The increased level of oxygen helps wounds to heal quicker and fight off infections. The goal is to promote a faster healing process for hard to treat wounds.
