Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine

The ONLY Wound Care Center in the State of Maryland to receive

ACCREDITATION WITH DISTINCTION

from The Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is an international nonprofit association serving the medical, scientific and dive communities in more than 50 countries around the world. In 2001, the UHMS created a clinical hyperbaric medicine facility accreditation program. Accepted as the “gold standard” in accrediting clinical hyperbaric facilities, the UHNS program and standards have been recognized by The Joint Commission. Facilities that voluntarily participate in a UHMS survey permit a team of surveyors to examine staffing and training, equipment installation, operation, and maintenance, facility and patient safety, and standards of care. The seal of approval by the UHMS indicates that the hospital based FMH Center for Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine meets the high performance standards required for accreditation. The Accreditation with Distinction as a Level II Center indicates that the FMH facility exceeds those standards and has distinguished itself as one of the premier wound care facilities in the country.

Finally, an approach to skin and wound care that goes beyond the surface.

We designed the FMH Center for Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine not only to operate as a state-of-the-art medical facility, but as place where patients feel comfortable. That's why, before we treat any symptom, we go out of our way to make sure you're treated with respect and consideration.

And that's just the beginning.

We not only treat the symptom, we treat the person.  Like a person.

For people living with challenging or chronic, non-healing wounds, burns, or other skin conditions, the center provides many soothing benefits.

  • Hands-on care, supervised by a team of multi-disciplinary experts.
  • Innovative skin/wound products and services.
  • Leading-edge technology.
  • ...not to mention the renowned medical and surgical capabilities of Frederick Memorial Hospital.

At FMH Advanced Skin & Wound Care Center, we work to improve your wound or skin condition quickly and effectively, but our real focus is always on you.

 

The FMH Center for Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine features two corridors lined with spacious treatment rooms in addition to a pair of hyperbaric chambers.


The hyperbaric chambers are large enough to allow patients to sit upright or lay down during treatment, and the flat-screen televisions on top of each chamber help pass the time.
