SMC Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center recently moved into a spacious 4,000-square-foot new center, relocating to the front of the hospital. This move significantly increases patient accessibility to the center and comes with a designated parking lot and a drive-up entrance where patients can be safely dropped off under a large canopy.
“The newly remodeled SMC Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center is another step we’ve taken to strengthen Salem Medical Center and its clinical services,” said Dr. Tammy Torres, CEO. “With the addition of a Hyperbaric chamber, our wound care team is equipped to treat even the most advanced wounds. Our emphasis has been to upgrade both technology and facility while improving patient access.”
The new space has four exam rooms, an expansive nurses station, a private entrance, a spacious waiting room, changing rooms with lockers for patient belongings, large supply closets to help staff with easier access to DME (Durable Medical Equipment) products, and upgraded computers and displays.
SMC Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center Program Director Renee Miller, RN, said the center was designed to maximize patient access and comfort.
“For many patients with wounds, just getting around is sometimes a major challenge,” Miller said. “From the drop off area under our canopy to the relocation to the front of the hospital, we wanted to make the center as easy to access as possible.
“The new space is functional and clinical, yet comfortable. It has a great atmosphere for our patients who come to us for healing.”
