OGH's Wound Center celebrates 10 years

The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine at Olean General Hospital celebrated its 10th anniversary this summer. As part of the celebration, Wound Center staff held a contest and prize drawing for employees and open house.


The center opened July 20, 2007 to improve the quality of life for those with chronic, non-healing wounds due to burns, infected or traumatic wounds, pressure ulcers or any other wound that does not heal on its own after several weeks. In the last decade, staff have treated nearly 4,000 wound care and 157 hyperbaric oxygen therapy patients.


It is only one of two centers in western New York accredited as a level 1 site, meaning the center treats acute and chronic conditions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


In 2016, the center received a special four-year accreditation with distinction for its hyperbaric oxygen services by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. OGH is the only hospital in western New York and one of only about 24 percent of facilities in the nation to earn accreditation with distinction.


Olean General Hospital is a member of Kaleida Health, Buffalo, NY, and part of Upper Allegheny Health System.
