Jane Phillips Wound Center Construction Begins
Construction recently began on the new home for the Wound Center at Jane Phillips Medical Center, 222 SE DeBell Avenue in Bartlesville.
The Wound Center is currently located in the Jane Phillips Physical Medicine Center, 3550 SE Frank Phillip Boulevard.
The new location will allow the addition of two hyperbaric chambers for wound care treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment for patients with slow healing or chronic wounds. During HBOT therapy, the patient breathes 100-percent oxygen at greater than normal atmospheric pressure. HBOT is administered on an outpatient basis in a transparent, airtight, pressurized chamber.
The increased pressure provides greater levels of oxygen to damaged tissue, promoting healing.
The project is anticipated to be completed spring 2018.
The Wound Center at Jane Phillips is a patient-focused, goal-oriented and evidence-based wound center. The staff works with many care providers in the community, including surgeons, physical therapists, home health specialists, podiatrists and primary care physicians to offer patients the most complete care possible.
A patient with a slow healing or chronic wound may be a candidate for a wound center referral. Wounds that do not heal in a timely manner, usually between 2-4 weeks can become chronic. A patient can ask their primary care physician or surgeon for a referral to the wound care center if they have concerns about their wound(s).
The Wound Center specializes in providing wound management for:
- Lower extremity ulcer
- Diabetic ulcers
- Venous insufficiency
- Ischemic ulcers
- Neuropathic ulcers
- Surgical wounds
- Other non-healing wounds
