FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Debra Pagano Cohen
Close to five million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic wounds and the number is on the rise. The New York Hospital Queens Center for Wound Healing at Silvercrest addresses the increasing need for more aggressive wound treatment for people with hard-to-treat chronic wounds such as pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers and radionecrosis (the destruction of tissue). The Center uses some of the most advanced techniques, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), and is one of only two Centers in Queens that offer HBOT.
New York Hospital Queens will celebrate the completion of the new Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Members of the press will have an opportunity to tour the Center, take photos and interview the Center’s medical and nursing staff.
