Oakwood Healthcare Inc.'s Heritage Hospital in Taylor has opened a $1.5 million Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine.
The center replaces a temporary single-chamber hyperbaric oxygen therapy unit — where 100 percent oxygen is pressurized and used to improve healing of chronic wounds — with four individual chambers featuring flat-screen televisions and Netflix accounts. The investment also includes a new waiting area and four new exam rooms
The new design gives patients more privacy and comfort and allows the hospital to serve bed-ridden patients, whom it could not serve before, according to a news release.
It's part of a three-year, $31-million investment at the 209-bed hospital that began in April 2010. Other investments include a 12-unit, bone-and-joint patient care center that has opened and planned expansions to operating rooms, and a new entrance to the operating/surgical area of the hospital.
