UHMS Accredits LST Kingston, New York, HBOT Center

The hyperbaric oxygen center at HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley's Kingston Hospital has earned accreditation by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). The outpatient HBOT center is a Life Support Technologies Group (LST) facility. Read the full story in the Saugerties Post Star. Kingston now ranks among just 6 UHMS-accredited facilities in New York and 121 nationwide, not nearly enough to adequately serve the hundreds of thousands of people with chronic wounds, diabetic ulcers, delayed radiation injury, and other FDA-approved indications for HBO therapy.
