EL PASO- Sierra Providence East Medical Center (SPEMC) is expanding with the opening of a new Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center.
The 3474 square foot facility located in the medical office building next to the hospital will offer specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds.
“The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center represents over a quarter of a million dollar investment by Sierra Providence East Medical Center, and offers a much needed service to our physicians and patients," said Sally Hurt-Steffen, CEO of Sierra Providence East Medical Center.
The center is located at 3270 Joe Battle Blvd, suite 160, (medical office building) adjacent to the hospital.
The oxygenation offered by hyperbaric treatments can help patients with chronic non-healing wounds caused by diabetes, traumatic injury, poor circulation, radiation treatment and other causes.
The center has two private hyperbaric chambers that can provide a relaxing treatment setting. This specific type of care involves giving patients high concentrations of oxygen under pressure to increase the oxygen level in the blood and tissues to promote healing.
The Wound Care Center works with physicians to determine effective courses of treatment. This comprehensive outpatient service offers advanced healing therapies often unavailable in primary care offices. When wounds persist and resist conventional treatment, a specialized approach is required for healing.
