UHMS Accredits HBOT At Good Samaritan, Suffern NY

The Wound and Hyperbaric Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital, Suffern, New York, has earned accreditation by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). The hospital-based HBOT center is a Bon Secours Charity Health System and Life Support Technologies Group (LST) facility.

From the news release:

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Institute represents the most advanced integration of hardware, software, staff training and credentialing available to the region," said Glenn Butler, CEO of the Life Support Technologies group, which has partnered with Good Samaritan Hospital to develop the Institute. "Being a UHMS-accredited facility demonstrates that the Institute has been thoroughly examined and deemed successful in meeting the national standards set forth by UHMS and The Joint Commission."

Our congratulations to good folks at Good Sam, Bon Secours, and (once again) LST. HyperbaricLink joins The Joint Commission in encouraging more hyperbaric medicine programs to seek and attain UHMS accreditation, for the good of all healthcare consumers and referring physicians in need of quality HBOT. Go to the UHMS website to learn more about the accreditation process.
