Marietta hyperbaric facility one of only three in the nation to receive honor

HyOx Medical Treatment Center was designated as the third clinical hyperbaric medicine program in the United States to earn reaccreditation “with distinction.” The high honor was bestowed by the Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), hyperbaric medicine’s international standards-setting organization.

With this designation, Marietta-based HyOx joins the ranks of the Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine & Environmental Physiology and the Center for Hyperbaric Medicine at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, WA. According to the UHMS Director of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs W. T. Workman, “achieving this significant milestone reflects HyOx’s commitment to excellence.”

HyOx prescribes 100 percent oxygen under pressure in Georgia’s largest hyperbaric chamber to patients with conditions approved by Medicare and the UHMS. The evidence-based hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps boost the body’s healing process in patients with conditions such as chronic diabetic wounds, carbon monoxide poisoning, failed flaps/grafts, bone infections, decompression illness, and soft tissue damage from radiation. By delivering the oxygen at an increased atmospheric pressure, the areas of the body devoid of oxygen are reached, supersaturated and are able to begin the healing process.
