Adventist opens special wound center

Adventist Medical Center opened a new Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center on Monday. (Dec. 13, 2005)

The center features two hyperbaric chambers in addition to an American Diabetes Association-recognized education center that will instruct diabetic patients on general diabetes control and wound care-related dietary issues.

Dr. Enoch Huang -- Oregon's only board-certified undersea and hyperbaric medicine physician -- will serve as medical director for the wound center. The center will contribute to the hyperbaric medicine community through its partnership with Praxis Clinical Services, an organization with 63 hyperbaric facilities across the country.
