Wound Care

  • At any given time, almost six million Americans suffer from problem wounds.
  • Problem wounds are wounds that have not started to heal in four weeks or are not completely healed in eight weeks.
  • Types of wounds needing care are diabetic wounds, pressure wounds, venous wounds, burns, acute trauma and more.
  • A type of treatment is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, in which a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while reclining in a pressurized chamber, rapidly accelerating the healing process.
  • Mount Nittany Health Center for Wound Care specializes in the treatment of problem wounds.

The Foundation’s 21st Annual Golf Tournament raised $150,000 for the new Cancer Center.
