Wound Care Clinic
Patients who experience acute or chronic non-healing wounds can receive convenient and comprehensive outpatient treatment at Newman Regional Wound Care Clinic.
Nationally, approximately 7 million people suffer from wounds that will not heal – a serious problem that can lead to amputation of limbs and dramatically impaired quality of life. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds occur most frequently in the elderly and people with diabetes.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. HBOT promotes muscle, bone repair, and nerve regeneration by stimulating angiogenesis. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan. Having a chamber in Emporia greatly benefits those patients who qualify for treatment. HBOT treatments are recommended five days a week, last up to 90 minutes and usually require 20-25 treatments.
