PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The newly expanded Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Berkshire Medical Center welcomes the community to an open house at its new location on Wednesday, March 7.

The center is relocating from the 3rd floor of the BMC Medical Arts Complex to the site of the former Crane Day Surgery Center at 66 Wahconah St. The open house will be held from 11 to 1 and from 5 to 7. The new center is designed to be more spacious and convenient for patients in need of care for non-healing wounds.

The Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at BMC has treated more than 3,500 patients and has a heal rate of 96 percent, which is significantly higher than the national average. In 2011, BMC's center was named a Center of the Year by Diversified Clinical Services, the national leader in outpatient wound care management.

During the open house event, attendees can meet the wound center team, tour the state-of-the-art facility, which features two hyperbaric oxygen chambers, learn more about the expanded services being provided, and receive information on the opening of the new Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Fairview Hospital and wound services being provided to local long-term care facilities.

If planning to attend, the favor of a reply is requested by calling 413-447-2060 or by emailing mstanger@bhs1.org.
