Executive Director

Website Hyperbaric Vermont

About Hyperbaric Vermont
Formed in 2017, Hyperbaric Vermont is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to raise awareness of the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and to make this life-changing treatment accessible.
We do this by providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to patients at our treatment facilities in Montpelier and South Burlington, VT, and by supporting other physicians/organizations with a similar vision to do so through our affiliated treatment centers. Hyperbaric Vermont offers education to the public and outreach to community and health care organizations about the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. We provide training, support and resources to affiliated and independently owned treatment centers and physicians and serve as a model for other organizations to do so in other areas.  As HBOT is generally not covered by insurance in the US, we strive to make this life-changing treatment financially accessible to those who need it.

As Hyperbaric Vermont builds out its team and programs and works to create long-term sustainability the organization will have these focus areas:
Providing Affordable HBOT: Continuing to provide affordable HBOT at its existing treatment centers in Montpelier and South Burlington VT.
Provider Training and Certification: Continuing the work of training physicians and other providers interested in offering affordable HBOT to their patients/clients, review and revise standards as needed, develop a comprehensive curriculum for certification.
Affiliate Program: Through our Provider Trainings, expand its existing Affiliate Network to include regional providers interested in making affordable HBOT available throughout Vermont and its neighboring environs. We do this with the understanding that HBOT must be readily and locally available in order to be accessible to those with limited resources and capacity to travel and that this is a cooperative rather than a competitive endeavor.
Education and Outreach: Continuing the work of Hyperbaric Vermont, provide education through presenting/exhibiting at health conferences and other related events, and developing relationships with organizations, local businesses and support services that provide care to our patient populations to create and increase awareness of HBOT and its clinical applications.
Serving as a Model: Continuing the work of consulting with, training and supporting others interested in making affordable HBOT available in regions outside of Vermont.
