Additional safety protocols may exist and will be explained to you over the phone during scheduling.

Beebe Promotes Healing
Beebe's healing rate is consistently greater than 98 percent, exceeding the national average. Many of these wounds went untreated for weeks or months before receiving specialized wound care. Beebe offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy using three BARA-MED hyperbaric chambers. These chambers provide state-of-the-art oxygen therapy to promote wound healing.
