mary carvalho rn, bsn, mbaMary has nearly 40 years of experience in critical care medicine, wound care and hyperbaric medicine.



Why did you choose this career field?

“It’s very interesting to see people at different stage of health; I have worked with patients who are critically ill and patients who are recovering in rehab. Wound care is different because chronic wounds are impacted by disease state. It is always intriguing to see how we can help them heal. I love to see the expressions on people’s faces when they realize they are healing. Patients look forward to their appointments to see how much further they have come. This Center has top-notch equipment and the staff who know how to use it! The staff is hard-working, dedicated and love what they do. We work as a team with one goal, helping you heal.”
