Advanced Wound Care
Our Wound Care Center offers advanced care for wounds, including state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy—one of the most advanced treatments available for healing wounds. Patients who receive this therapy breathe pure oxygen in an enclosed chamber, which helps increase blood oxygen levels and promote growth of blood vessels in damaged tissues.
Our certified wound care nurses are specially trained to assess and treat wounds following treatment plans developed by a physician. For patients who are homebound, nurses with Cape Cod Healthcare’s Visiting Nurses Association travel from Plymouth to Provincetown to offer in-home care.
