OCH Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center will now be under the leadership of Brad McKenzie as the Center’s new program director.

In this position, McKenzie will be responsible for overseeing the clinic’s day-to- day operations, such as quality management, reimbursement, performance improvement, and community education.

“I’m proud to be a part of a team of true professionals who treat our patients with love and kindness,” McKenzie said. “I’ve been able to visit other wound care centers throughout the state of Mississippi, and I can say unequivocally that the OCH Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center is the nicest facility in the state. As the only one of its kind in the Golden Triangle, the Center provides a unique service to those in need of this specialized care.”

McKenzie said he feels right at home at OCH. Not only was the Starkville native born at OCH, but he also spent much of his time at the Medical Center in his former position as a senior sales consultant with Johnson & Johnson.

He is also a 2001 graduate of Mississippi State University, McKenzie holds a bachelor of science in business and a minor in marketing. He and his wife, Nicole, have two sons, Luke, 10 and Landon, 6.

The Center, which is recognized as a Center of Distinction, is a member of the Healogics Network, with access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds.
Located inside OCH Regional Medical Center, the Center offers specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Some of the leading-edge treatments offered at the Center include negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, application of cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes to the wound, offloading or total contact casts and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
