Wound Care

Wound CareNorthwest Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, a service partnering Northwest Texas Healthcare System and Healogics, provides quality wound management.

NWTX understands the underlying conditions that cause acute and chronic wounds: diabetes, poor circulation and infections to name but a few. A team of specialists trained in wound care—general surgeons, plastic surgeons, and registered nurses—work together to heal your wound. Radiology, surgery, rehab... all the related services are done right here. So you don't need to travel to get high level wound care.

The staff also helps you learn how to take care of yourself, too. In fact, since chronic wounds are so often associated with diabetes, the NWTHS Diabetes Center (nationally recognized by the American Diabetes Association) offers educational classes every month. Classes meet the second Tuesday of each month. Call 806-354-1701 to enroll. Or to find out more about diabetes, call 806-354-1202.

UHMS Accredited

Northwest Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has full accreditation from The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). The accreditation indicates the highest industry standards and best practices in hyperbaric treatment. NWTX is one of the few hospitals in the nation to participate in the organization’s rigorous accreditation process. A survey team evaluated the quality of the facility and equipment, the professionalism of the staff, as well as the level of their training. The quality of care and patient safety measures were also evaluated to ensure that the highest standards of care are maintained at the facility.

Providing quality care is our top priority. We are very proud of this accreditation appointment and are committed to seeing that NWTX serves as an industry benchmark for high standards and exceptional care. Fostering patient trust is a key driver.

The UHMS began the accreditation process in 2000 due to the growth and demand for hyperbaric medicine. They use the process to measure quality assurance among wound care centers that offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), one of the most sophisticated and effective wound treatment services.

Hyperberic Oxygen Therapy

Hyperberic Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a procedure in which a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while relaxing in the pressurized concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and the wound bed, which rapidly accelerates the healing process. The staff puts together a treatment program based on each patient's special needs, including visits for home care. Any time patients or family members have questions, our staff is available.
