About Bayfront Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center
Learn more about our Hyperbaric and Wound
A wound that won’t heal needs more than just another dressing. It needs the experience of a multidisciplinary wound care team, like the one at Bayfront Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center. Our Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center is located off the hospital’s main campus - at 7000 4th Street North, sharing its office space with one of our Convenient Care Clinics.
Our comprehensive center is designed to complement the primary physician’s care. Physicians refer patients to the center for comprehensive wound management, and should expect to continue to treat the underlying condition and provide for the patient’s overall care.
Dedicated to the management of chronic, nonhealing wounds, our specialized care helps promote the healing process. It begins when qualified medical professionals perform an initial overall assessment of our patients. A physician trained in wound care performs a thorough examination of the wound and the surrounding areas. Next, the team creates an individualized treatment plan. The plan is communicated to the patient’s primary care physician, who remains an active member of the wound management team.
Our wound treatment services include:
- Trained and certified staff
- Care planning based on the individual needs of each patient
- Implementing quality wound care as directed by physician
- Vascular laboratory
- Advanced doppler studies
- Radiology services
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Onsite diagnostics
- Transcutaneous oximetry
- Simple doppler studies
- Ankle brachial index
