UHMS Survey: Shining Team Excellence!

A Center in the Washington D.C. area had a successful Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) re-accreditation survey on December 11th and 12th. Since their initial UHMS accreditation in November 2011, the Center hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) volume has increased by 100%! This growth also resulted in expanding the team from 1 Certified Hyperbaric Technologist (CHT) to three and adding two more chambers for a total of four in the past two years.

They also sensed a welcoming and cohesive vibe when they walked through the Center’s front door.
