Business Outstanders has reached out to Erika Jordan, and here’s what she had to say.

In Conversation with Erika Jordan

Can you tell us about the inspiration behind founding Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center and your journey in establishing it as a premier hyperbaric oxygen therapy concept? 

My inspiration to start my own company started when working in a hospital setting, I soon realized the disadvantages that those centers presented. At those facilities, we were limited to only treating 14 insurance-approved indications—meaning that many patients had to be turned away from receiving HBOT treatment for not falling within their narrow treatment guidelines.  

With the experience gained from working in a private clinic, I turned my frustration at the lack of treatment opportunities into the goal of offering HBOT to all patients in a cost-effective manner. 

I had always dreamed of opening my own hyperbaric facility. With this goal in mind, I opened Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center in 2017 to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy for any patient who needs treatment. 

Since the beginning, the Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center has seen remarkable growth, evolving from a team of two to eight full-time employees, establishing two locations, and featuring six state-of-the-art hyperbaric chambers. 

I genuinely believe that healing patients is my calling, and I'm committed to upholding the highest safety standards in hyperbaric medicine and inspiring my team each day to provide the best possible care to our patients.  

What sets Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center apart from other hyperbaric oxygen therapy centers? 

What sets Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center apart from other hyperbaric oxygen therapy centers is our Years of hands-on experience, care provided to our patients, and passion for our field. 

How do you ensure that your team remains highly qualified and compassionate in delivering hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients? 

Training is the biggest part. Unfortunately, in our field there is not a degree to become a Hyperbaric Operator. So, I have developed initial, and ongoing training for my team in order for us to set the bar high and provide the utmost quality and care for the patient who chooses to heal with us. 

 Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center Team

Could you walk us through the state-of-the-art facilities at your medical centers, particularly the Sechrist monoplace hyperbaric chambers? How do these facilities contribute to the patient's experience? 

Our Hyperbaric chambers are the best for many reasons. Aesthetically they are beautiful with clear acrylic. From an operator's standpoint they are easy to use and very safe. These are the main types of chambers found in the hospital setting. Besides the luxurious chambers we have, we are also a paperless office as I have developed a custom Template on our Electronic Medical Software making it quick and easy to transfer medical records, as well as our patient monitoring cameras. Our chamber room is equipped to always hear and see our patients while in treatment. This is the first I've seen on the monoplace setting but just sets us up a notch when it comes to safety. 

How does the Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center ensure accessibility to hyperbaric oxygen therapy for all patients, regardless of their insurance coverage? 

Unlike most hospitals we offer discounted cash treatment options. This helps patients who do not have insurance, have deductibles too high to afford, or choose to heal naturally without their insurance for whatever reason they choose. 

As a woman founder, what unique perspectives or experiences do you bring to the leadership of Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center, particularly in the healthcare industry? 

As a founder, what makes us unique is I have worked in every aspect of the hyperbaric field and have gained many experiences that I can now provide to our patients. From having first hand experience, I was able to see what was working and areas I wanted to add to better patient care. As my mind set was no one wants to have medical procedures. So, the ones who choose to come to us have the best experience in all ways when in our clinic. This also helps me with my team. As I understand the different departments I can relate to and only try to better the workplace for the ones who choose to work with us. 

Managing a medical center requires effective leadership and organizational skills. Could you share some strategies or principles you rely on to effectively manage the operations of Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center? 

My schedule is super busy as I own and operate 2 locations, have two babies, and serve as operations chair for Making Strides against breast cancer for American Cancer Society. The best way to stay on task is by way of daily schedules and goals with due dates to ensure I do not miss anything. 

Can you discuss any initiatives or programs you've implemented to support the professional development and growth of your team members? 

Our team is what makes our company so as a leader I strive every day to go above and beyond to be an effective leader. Communication is key. So, whether it be communication by way of emails, weekly brief talks, or in person meetings, it is important to have a strong line of communication with your team. It is tremendously important to listen and always be there to assist when needed. 

How do you stay updated with the latest advancements and scientific research in hyperbaric oxygen therapy to continually enhance the quality of care provided at your centers? 

The best way to stay on top of the latest advancements within our field is by way of google alerts. I have a series of Hyperbaric related keywords that I get emails daily from containing all info that goes out relating to those topics. 

From these daily alerts I get to read recent peer reviewed medical publications, latest news worldwide relating to Hyperbarics, a celebrity having treatment for a safety concern. We can learn from all the latest info and implement safety strategies in attempts to be the best we can every day. I then share these with my team so we can all stay on top of the latest news.
