Wound Care / Ostomy Services

Salem Regional Medical Center offers advanced services to meet the needs of patients with hard-to-heal wounds or patients who have or will have an ostomy.

►Wound Healing Center

SRMC's Wound Healing Center offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy and other leading edge treatments for hard to heal wounds. Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy is an advanced wound healing treatment that uses a special, encapsulated chamber to increase the amount of oxygen inhaled. The concentrated oxygen is then delivered to the damaged tissues to promote healing and fight infection.

Types of Wounds We Treat:

  • Diabetic, venous/arterial and pressure ulcers
  • Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
  • Radionecrosis
  • Infections
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Insect bites
  • Thermal burns
  • Wounds that have not healed in 30 days
Ask your doctor about  our Wound Healing Center if:
  • You've had a sore that won't heal for more than 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes)
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor, or a change in color
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected


Referrals and Insurance
Your physician can refer you for an appointment or you can make your appointment directly. Most treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans.
