Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine
Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, which partners with Healogics™, was recently honored with the Center of Distinction Award for achieving outstanding patient outcomes for 12 consecutive months.
With a healing rate of 96 percent and an average healing time that is six days faster than the national average, Hoag ranks among the top 25 percent of over 500 Healogics wound care centers in operation nationwide. As one of only seven centers in the state to receive this distinction, Hoag has patient satisfaction scores higher than 92 percent.
Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center can help. With the state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address total patient health.
In addition to these comprehensive treatments, the adjunctive use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven effective in reducing swelling, fighting infection, and building new blood vessels, ultimately producing healthy tissue.
Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center is located at 520 Superior Avenue, Suite 140, within Hoag Health Center - Newport Beach. The center was especially designed for patients to receive high-level wound care and hyperbaric treatment while feeling the comforts of home.
