BELLEVUE, Wash.--()--Innovative Healthcare, Inc., a growing family of companies focused on the discovery and delivery of innovations in healthcare treatments, today announced that it has completed a multi-million dollar investment round. The funds are being used to launch three organizations this year: treatment centers branded as Restorix Health that will be located in underserved markets; the Restorix Research Institute, which will focus on clinical research; and a not-for-profit called the Restorix Foundation. Working in concert with the Restorix Research Institute, Restorix Health will provide integrated services including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for patients suffering from chronic wounds, injuries and diseases, while the Institute conducts specialized clinical research in HBOT to advance its use for treating disease conditions such as traumatic brain injury, concussive sports injuries, and strokes. The Restorix Foundation will work to advance hyperbaric medical practices by assisting with research, education and consumer engagement through grants, donations and partnerships.
“By tightly integrating Restorix Health and the Restorix Research Institute our hope is to provide patients and their physicians with immediate access to research findings that can be rapidly integrated into care plans to improve patient outcomes and advance the scientific study of new uses for hyperbaric medicine.”
Restorix Health will use a centers-of-excellence approach to ensure best practices based on advanced research for wound care, hyperbaric medicine and infusion therapies. Each center of excellence will be tightly aligned with the Restorix Research Institute which will pursue specialized peer-reviewed clinical research to evaluate uses of hyperbaric medicine for many disease conditions. The first Restorix Health Center of Excellence will open December 13 in Issaquah, WA, followed by additional locations in Washington and California.
Innovative Healthcare CEO John Fallou stated, “We believe that by integrating advanced wound care with related services in one convenient setting patients will benefit from aggressive treatments using the most advanced technology available, at a lower cost.” Fallou added, “By tightly integrating Restorix Health and the Restorix Research Institute our hope is to provide patients and their physicians with immediate access to research findings that can be rapidly integrated into care plans to improve patient outcomes and advance the scientific study of new uses for hyperbaric medicine.”
Restorix Health Chief Medical Director, Tommy Love, DO explained the importance of community-based wound care centers: “Patients suffering from diabetes and chronic wounds represent a growing and underserved population in terms of advanced research and community-based services available to address their needs. Our intention is to provide more access to highly professional care so that we can do our part to help reduce the tragic impact of patients left untreated which results in more than 80,000 diabetes-related amputations per year, not to mention a diminished quality of life and ongoing healthcare system costs.”
