The Healing Begins Here

The Wound and Hyperbaric Center at Good Samaritan Hospital: Don’t let a chronic wound keep you from enjoying your life.

We heal wounds using an efficient, multi-disciplinary team approach offering patients customized and comprehensive evaluations and therapies.


Our Healing Philosophy:

The Good Samaritan Hospital Wound and Hyperbaric Center work collaboratively with primary physicians and other outpatient services to ensure that patients receive the most complete evaluation and treatment. We focus on restoring the natural healing process, often without surgery. Individualized treatment techniques take advantage of recent advances in wound care, while minimizing patient discomfort and inconvenience.

We are experts in coordinating care with primary physicians, diabetic educators, lymphedema services and other specialties (home care and medical supply companies, etc.) to provide our patients with advanced personalized therapies. Our specialists study the wound itself, along with the patient's overall medical condition to determine which course of action to take. We develop a customized treatment plan, with regular office visits to review progress and adjust treatment as needed to facilitate healing.

Hyperbaric Center: A Program of Distinction through the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:

A very important component in wound healing is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for patients with wounds who have not responded to other treatment. HBOT supplies 100% pure pressurized oxygen the body needs to stimulate and support healing and restore the ability to repair itself. Patients simply lie in a comfortable chamber, relax and while watching a movie or TV, or listen to music while their body naturally heals.

Our Hyperbaric Center is one of the select few in New York State accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. Our highly trained, caring staff utilizes advanced technologies and a multi-disciplinary approach to healing. Physicians and health care professionals are available to individualize treatment plans for each patient, including diagnosis, treatment, education and prevention.

  • Stimulates blood vessel growth which promotes healing
