Wound Care

Healing from the inside out

Did you know that Peterson offers the ONLY facility in the entire region to feature the resources, staff and equipment to heal wounds?  Tucked inside our Ambulatory Care Center next to the main hospital, our Wound Center rivals a military base of progressive and advanced wound care treatment.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers

Yes and Yes. We have two, which is unique for a hospital of our size in our region.   We proudly feature not one, but two, hyperbaric chambers gifted to us by our caring community.  Who would ever need or want to travel for wound care treatment days and weeks at a time to the inner city?  Thank goodness our Kerr County and regional patients don’t have to ask that question because we can serve their healing needs.
