Good Samaritan Hospital's Wound and Hyperbaric Institute Receives Accreditation from Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society, Recognizing Advanced Care
Date:7/25/2011

SUFFERN, N.Y., July 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wound and Hyperbaric Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital has been awarded accreditation by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), the leading authority in hyperbaric medicine. This accreditation is recognition that few hospitals and facilities have earned, and identifies the Institute as providing patients with advanced care.

The super oxygenation offered by hyperbaric treatments can help those with chronic non-healing wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation, traumatic injury, radiation therapy and other causes. Good Samaritan Hospital's Wound Care and Hyperbaric Institute offers two oversized, private hyperbaric chambers where patients can relax, listen to music or watch a movie during treatment. More than 5 million Americans suffer from non-healing wounds.

Good Samaritan Hospital is the only hospital in the region to offer this treatment, which is designed to heal wounds stemming from infections, radiation, operations, post-operative complications, trauma, diabetes, and gangrene.  The Institute is led by Hyperbaric Medical Director Bijo Chacko M.D. and Medical Director of Wound Care Jay Levine, DPM. Integrated clinical support is provided by System Director of Wound Services & Diabetes Education Carla Errico, MPH, RD, and the entire Good Samaritan Hospital physician/clinician staff.

"This recognition reinforces the hard work and dedication to patients that our staff exhibits on a daily basis," said Philip A.
