The Wound Healing Center and Hyperbaric Medicine Program at Winthrop- University Hospital has been awarded accreditation for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). Accreditation is only awarded to those facilities that undergo an expert evaluation of their staffing and training, equipment installation, operation, maintenance, facility and patient safety and standards of care. In fact, over 1,600 individual standards must be successfully met in order to earn accreditation.

“Accreditation by the UHMS signifies Winthrop’s commitment to patient safety and upholding the highest performance standards when treating patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy,” said Scott Gorenstein, MD, FACEP, Clinical Director of the Hyperbaric Medicine Program at Winthrop.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been in use for many years to treat wounds that have resisted standard wound care, including diabetic leg and foot ulcers, wounds that have been skin grafted and not healed completely, those caused by radiation therapy, and wounds with serious infections, such as osteomyelitis.
