KILLEEN (November 11, 2013) A grand opening celebration will be held for the expansion of the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at Metroplex Hospital Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce will assist with the ribbon cutting ceremony and open house.
The center has expanded to five more treatment rooms, a dual clinic with two physicians and an increase in hyperbaric oxygen therapy chambers.
It is American Diabetes Month so staff members will not only give tours of the building but also give out educational information about diabetes and wound care and give free foot checks to the public.
The foot checks are to check for a diabetic foot ulcer which can lead to limb amputations.
