Our Healing Philosophy:

 doctor chatting with patient

The Good Samaritan Hospital Wound and Hyperbaric Care Institute works collaboratively with primary physicians and other outpatient services to ensure that patients receive the most complete evaluation and treatment. We focus on restoring the natural healing process, often without surgery. Individualized treatment techniques take advantage of recent advances in wound care, while minimizing patient discomfort and inconvenience.

We are experts in coordinating care with primary physicians, diabetic educators, lymphedema services and other specialties (home care and medical supply companies, etc.) to provide our patients with advanced personalized therapies. Our specialists study the wound itself, along with the patient's overall medical condition to determine which course of action to take. We develop a customized treatment plan, with regular office visits to review progress and adjust treatment as needed to facilitate healing.

 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:

A very important component in wound healing is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for patients with wounds who have not responded to other treatment. HBOT supplies 100% pure pressurized oxygen the body needs to stimulate and support healing and restore the ability to repair itself. Patients simply lie in a comfortable chamber, relax and while watching a movie or TV, or listen to music while their body naturally heals.


Our Wound and Hyperbaric Care Institute is one of the select few in New York State accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. Our highly trained, caring staff utilizes advanced technologies and a multi-disciplinary approach to healing. Physicians and health care professionals are available to individualize treatment plans for each patient, including diagnosis, treatment, education and prevention.

Hear From Our Patients 

Testimonial 1:  Rabbi Dov Bidnick 

Rabbi Dov Bidnick, 78
, first came to The Wound and Hyperbaric Care Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital in February 2018 to receive therapy for a persistent wound on his right leg and foot. He has been receiving wound care treatment from George Liberis, MD including medicinal therapies and wound dressings. Bidnick has been overwhelmed by the kindness and personal care that Dr. Liberis provides. “Dr. Liberis even invited my wife and me to come to his office to meet with him and his wife for a social visit; he goes above and beyond,” said Bidnick.

The impressive, patient-first care is consistent across The Wound and Hyperbaric Care Institute  “Heidi, Ann, Amelia and the other nurses and techs in the Wound and Hyperbaric Care Institute are outstanding,” said Bidnick.

As Bidnick continues his wound therapy, he is grateful to the staff at Good Samaritan Hospital and is hopeful he is close to getting back to the things he loves.
