Hyperbaric Medicine

The Hyperbaric Center at St. Mary’s Medical Center is equipped with the technology and specially-trained team necessary to treat the full spectrum of emergency conditions and chronic illnesses. Our hyperbaric chambers are accessible 24/7 in the event of an emergency, and are available during normal business hours for elective care.

Patients can sit upright or recline comfortably while reading or watching a movie as they undergo treatment in one of our multi-place chambers. If necessary, accommodations can be made for patients on stretchers. A nurse, respiratory therapist or paramedic trained in hyperbaric medicine remain in attendance at all times and communicate with a hyperbaric physician as needed. If needed, a trained professional can enter the chamber and quickly be at the patient’s side.

Should you have questions or would like to refer a patient for treatment, please call us at (561) 882-2852.
