Baystate Mary Lane Opens Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center

WARE — Baystate Mary Lane announced the opening of Baystate Mary Lane Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine Center, an outpatient program that specializes in the treatment of chronic and non-healing wounds. The program, located on the Davis Wing, will offer patients a variety of wound-care treatment options, including state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen chambers to focus on the treatment of chronic wounds, as well as relief for ulcers, infections, and difficult-to-heal wounds.

“For most people, cuts and scratches heal within days or weeks. But for those whose natural healing process is hampered, a simple sore can become a complex medical problem requiring specialized care,” said Denise Dowd, regional program director. 

Weighing nearly 2,000 pounds each, the two hyperbaric chambers at Baystate Mary Lane will treat serious chronic wounds for approximately 10{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5} of the patients seen in the wound center. 

“The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Program is one of several priority programs and services that are coming to Baystate Mary Lane as we continue to invest in high-quality healthcare that matches the needs of our community,” said Michael Moran, president and chief administrative officer for Baystate Health’s Eastern Region, which includes the campuses of Baystate Mary Lane and Baystate Wing Hospital. 

The overall cost of the renovations to the Davis Wing to bring wound care to Baystate Mary Lane was an investment of more than $400,000 made by Baystate Health. 

Baystate Mary Lane Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine Center has partnered with Florida-based Healogics Inc., to join its network of nearly 800 centers nationwide. Healogics utilizes an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care.

“We are excited to be able to provide this much-needed service to the community,” said Dr. Gaurav Narula, physician provider with Healogics Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center in Ware. “Our team is trained to provide comprehensive treatment and care to heal wounds as quickly as possible.”

Leading-edge treatments at the center will include negative-pressure wound therapy, bioengineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings, and growth-factor therapies. The center also will offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5} oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.
