CARLSBAD — On June 26, the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at 6260 El Camino Real, commemorated the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric exceeding national benchmarks for healing for 60 consecutive months and honored its founder.
The highlight of the event was honoring Dr. Paul Haydu, the founder, mentor and original medical director for the center, with the unveiling of a photographic art installation that will feature Dr. Haydu’s from his Nature Collection being displayed on the Center’s walls.
Haydu has practiced emergency medicine for 25 years before cancer forced him to slow down, and thus turn to wound care and more holistic approach to medicine. He became medical director of Tri-City Medical Center’s Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center in 2008 and died in 2013.
In addition, Haydu was an active protector of the San Dieguito lagoon as an avid nature photographer. Many of the bird, landscape and nature prints were on display at the center’s anniversary event, shot at the lagoon.
