The mission of the The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine is to provide the Southern New England region with access to expertise in advanced wound care and hyperbaric medicine therapies.
The management of chronic non-healing wounds is a complicated and time-consuming process. Our specialists work together with your private physician to provide individualized treatment and decrease the cost and time of your recovery.
The centerpiece of this new facility is a modern hyperbaric oxygen chamber that seats up to 10 people as adjunctive treatment for problem wounds, in addition to treating patients with carbon monoxide poisoning and diving accidents.

Accredited by UHMS
In late 2012, the Hartford Hospital Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center received reaccreditation though the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society (UHMS). This accreditation was developed to not only measure, but also ensure that a high quality and safe environment is maintained within hyperbaric facilities. This program evaluates the adequacy of the facility and equipment, the appropriateness of the staff and their training, and the quality and safety of patient care. Currently there are over 1,300 hospital-affiliated hyperbaric centers in the United States, only 120 have passed this accreditation survey process. Of the 19 hospital-affiliated hyperbaric centers located in Connecticut, only three are accredited by UHMS.
