FCMC Dinner Auction March 9
Fulton County Medical Center Foundation auction committee is pleased to announce its much-anticipated dinner auction will be held Saturday March 9, 2013. The event will begin at 4 p.m at Hustontown Area Volunteer Fire Co.
The auction committee is also accepting donations now through March 1. All proceeds this year will go to FCMC’s new hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber in the newly constructed Wound Care Services. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a clinical treatment where the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen intermittently while enclosed in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber at a pressure greater than one atmosphere. HBOT has been proven effective for many medical conditions.
Hyperbaric Medicine Society, one of the premier research institutes, has approved it to treat the following conditions:
A diabetes person with a wound that is slow to heal or is simply not healing
Anyone with a wound that has not shown improvement in four weeks
Certain infections of the bone and skin
Someone with damaged tissue from radiation therapy
Skin graphs with inadequate blood supply
Brown or recluse spider bites
Carbon monoxide poisoning
Post operative infections
Skin tears and lacerations
Anyone wishing to contribute goods and services to the auction or purchase tickets should contact Wendy Farling at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-485-6116.
