Saranac Lake, NY – A Groundbreaking Ceremony was held on September 22, 2011 for Airondack Medical Center’s new $2.7 million wound-care center. The 9,000 square foot facility will specialize in the treatment of patients who have chronic wounds, such as the elderly, people with diabetes and vascular disease and cancer patients who’ve undergone radiation treatment. The center will have a pair of hyperbaric chambers, which provide pressurized oxygen therapy that is designed to heal wounds quicker.
The new 2-story building will house the wound-care center in the first floor of the building
while the second floor will have physician offices that the hospital plans to lease. “It is great to be working with Adirondack Medical Center again and on this important project for the Adirondack community”, said Don Wells, President of DEW. “Construction is well underway and we expect the building to be complete sometime in mid to late February. “
