Hyperbaric Medicine Department Accredited with Distinction

The Hyperbaric Medicine department is proud to announce that in September the department successfully achieved accreditation with distinction from the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine SocietyExternal Icon. The UHMS clinical hyperbaric medicine facility accreditation programExternal Icon recognizes hyperbaric facilities that demonstrate their commitment to patient care and facility safety.

Upstate University Hospital’s hyperbaric facility is accredited as a Level One hyperbaric program that offers a full scope of service for the hyperbaric patient covering all recognized indications, including emergency life or limb threatening and is available for treatment of the emergent patient 24/7.

Accredited with Distinction means the facility has demonstrated the minimum conformance and has exceeded in specific activities, such as research, deserving the added recognition as hyperbaric community leaders.
