Although most minor wounds can be treated at home, some severe wounds may need additional care. At the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Cache Valley Hospital, we offer advanced treatment for chronic, non-healing wounds.
Our certified wound care nurses will provide a thorough evaluation of your wound and create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your unique situation. We offer a variety of treatments—including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)—to help you heal as quickly as possible.

One of the reasons that a wound does not heal is due to inadequate oxygen supply. If the wound does not receive enough oxygen, the cells will not replicate quickly enough, and there is a greater risk for infection. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves the delivery of pure oxygen into pressurized chambers, helping wounds receive the oxygen they need to heal safely and quickly.
Our center offers three single-person hyperbaric chambers that are comfortable and spacious. Additionally, our hospital's highly trained staff delivers an integrated team approach to healing. This includes an expert evaluation and a personalized care plan for every patient. At our hospital, patients are relaxing, sleeping, listening to music or watching their favorite movie as they heal.
