Other types include pressure sores and traumatic wounds. The Wound and Hyperbaric Center at Boone County Hospital uses the most up-to-date approaches to wound healing and remains current in new scientific advances in wound care. The Boone County Wound and Hyperbaric Center is a hospital-based outpatient service.
