Changes to Wound Care Center and Hyperbaric Medicine Program

August 3, 2018
GBMC is excited to announce the expansion and redesign of the Wound Care Center and Hyperbaric Medicine Program under the leadership of Medical Directors Jennifer Heller, M.D. and Alan Kimmel, M.D.

As you may know, the GBMC Wound Care Center has been operated by the wound company Healogics for many years. After several months of careful consideration, GBMC has decided to discontinue its work with Healogics in the fall of 2018 and act as an independent center. Our objective is to not only continue providing you with excellent care, but to also make your care and overall experience better.

You may notice some differences in personnel during the next several months, but please be assured that patient care will be seamlessly transitioned to our new team. Our phone number remains 443-849-6212 and you may find us online at www.gbmc.org/woundcare.

Beginning in fall 2018, patients of GBMC’s Wound Care Center will:
  • Receive a comprehensive evaluation from a vascular surgeon, podiatrist, infectious disease physician, or plastic surgeon.
  • Receive close follow-up care with a team of advanced practitioners who are specially trained in wound care.
  • Have access to same-day urgent wound consultations.
Initial consultations will begin with one of our multidisciplinary physicians and collaborative care with our team, including GBMC’s wound care nurses, will continue throughout the healing process. We are well equipped to provide consistent and comprehensive care, tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Patients who benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy will receive a comprehensive evaluation to assess appropriateness of this modality of therapy. Patients will be treated seamlessly in one of our six hyperbaric oxygen chambers following national guidelines. GBMC boasts some of the best healing rates in the Baltimore area.

If you have any questions about this transition, please do not hesitate to contact us at 443-849-6212.

Sincerely,

Harold J. Tucker, MD
