Medford was Hyperbaric Medical Solution’s first location. We excitingly saw our first patient on June 7th, 2011. Located in the rear of the New Beginnings Community Center, HMS Medford has two monoplace hyperbaric oxygen chambers, each with their own personal TV and DVD player. This location is accessible from Exit 65 on the Long Island Expressway, has easy parking and a comfortable waiting area for patients and their families or caregivers.
For those visiting us from out of town, HMS has arranged for a courtesy room rate rate at the nearby Marriott – The Residence Inn by Marriott Holstville. Please mention Hyperbaric Medical Solutions when calling for a reservation.
