Oxycare is the first and only internationally accredited medical hyperbaric oxygen treatment centre in Ireland
Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly TD today officially opened the Oxycare medical facility in Dublin, Ireland’s only internationally accredited medical hyperbaric oxygen treatment centre. In attendance were facility founders Dr Gerry Molloy and Mr Declan Fleming, along with former patients and a group of Dublin-based hospital consultants and medical professionals.
Oxycare provides medical Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment to patients referred by consultants around the country, with a mission to contribute to the health and wellbeing of patients by providing the highest standard of treatment to every patient. Conditions suitable for medical hyperbaric oxygen treatment include but are not limited to; enhancement of healing in oxygen deprived wounds, skin grafts and flaps post surgery, healing of heat burns, radiation injuries, crush-related injuries, idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Some evidence has also recently been gathered to support the effectiveness of treating Long Covid symptoms with medical standard Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
Speaking on the significance of this facility and its unique position in the Irish medical landscape, Minister Donnelly said “Oxycare is positioned to provide much-needed services to patients with appropriate clinical conditions. I am happy to be here today to mark the official opening of this facility, and hope it continues to provide medical services to those needing them for years to come.”
Dr Gerry Molloy, co-founder of Oxycare said, “As Ireland’s first and only internationally-accredited hyperbaric oxygen treatment centre, Oxycare is positioned uniquely in the Irish medical landscape, with consultants and surgeons at several of the country’s top hospitals referring patients to our facility to undergo this treatment in order to enhance outcomes for those patients for whom standard care may not prove sufficient. The results of treatment – adhering to appropriate medical standards and protocols – are impressive, and are attested to in correspondence from various consultants who have referred their patients and who have now adopted this mode of treatment as an option to be considered for the most difficult cases.”
“High-tech innovations do not always reduce healthcare cost, but this is the case for medical Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – overall healthcare spending in hospital and in the Community is reduced, while outcomes for patients are enhanced.“
He continued, “This centre represents a positive step forward in the advancement of Irish medical care, particularly for the patients – with stories of hope and healing embedded within the lives of patients who have been through our doors. We are proud to be able to offer this advanced treatment.”
The staff at Oxycare are medically trained and certified to carry out these treatments, providing a unique service in the Irish medical landscape. Oxycare is situated to deliver a medical service unlike any other available in Ireland today. It is a facility that is accredited by several governing bodies, both nationally and internationally, and endorsed by the HSE, and medical consultants and specialists nationwide.
