Wound Care & Hyperbaric Healing


Most wounds, minor cuts and scratches heal on their own within two weeks. Sometimes a wound stays open longer due to blood flow problems, infection, diabetes, or poor nutrition. The specially trained clinical team at Nanticoke’s Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center can help those wounds that just won’t heal on their own.

Nanticoke’s Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center offers teamwork, coordinated care, advanced technologies and excellent outcomes all in one convenient location.

The Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center is designed to be:

  • Hospital-Based
  • Out-patient
  • Interdisciplinary
  • Outcome-Focused
  • Aggressive
  • Advanced Wound Care

The Center helps heal chronic wounds faster by treating the cause of the non-healing wound and applying evidence-based, medical and surgical techniques that are outcome focused and cost-effective. Treatments methods include:

  • Advanced wound dressings
  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
  • Bioengineered Tissue
  • Debridement
  • Wraps to decrease lower leg swelling
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Patients and their families or caregivers are taught how to care for their wounds at home to further facilitate faster and more permanent healing. The latest approved devices and dressings to promote healing are used.
