The Hyperbaric Medicine Division has been awarded Hyperbaric Facility Accreditation from the Undersea Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), becoming one of only 60 facilities nationwide to receive full accreditation. It also provides a foundation for the increasing acceptance and credibility of hyperbaric medicine as a growing medical speciality.
The Hyperbaric chamber is located above the Emergency Department on the HCMC campus to facilitate the treatment of emergency patients. The chamber is also used for research into the treatment of traumatic brain injuries.
