Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) Installs New Hyperbaric Chamber

We are gratified to report progress according to schedule on the chamber replacement project at Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota. With the new chamber HCMC will almost double its capacity, from 12 to 23 patients, and relocate hyperbaric medicine from an offsite facility to the Medical Center proper.

The video below shows both the new "giant white box" hung on a gantry and the old 1964 multiplace chamber. Our company profile of Fink Engineering includes exterior and interior photos to give you a better idea of the triple-lock rectangular design.

For over two years we have been following HCMC's fight for survival and funding as our way of asking: Why doesn't every Level 1 trauma center in America provide 24/7 access to a hyperbaric chamber?
