Hyperbaric ChamberA big delivery offering new technology to the region will be arriving in the Northland on Tuesday, December 13.

That morning the two hyperbaric chambers weighing around two thousand pounds each will be delivered to St. Luke’s and brought through its skywalk system to the new St. Luke’s Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center in the Northland Medical Center. The chambers will be the first and only hyperbaric chambers in the region.

St. Luke’s is partnering with Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services, to open St. Luke’s Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center. It’s a move that will take wound care services to the next level. One of the key highlights of the new Center is the availability of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) which is delivered through the hyperbaric chamber. This therapy is for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds who have tried all other forms of wound care treatment and may be at risk of losing a limb. The new Center will open in January of 2017.
