BRADENTON, FL. - Manatee Memorial Hospital welcomed a new hyperbaric chamber to its facility, but it wasn't easy.

The chamber weighs nearly a ton, so the hospital had to remove a window and use a crane to lift it into the hospital's wound care and hyperbaric treatment center.

It's actually the hospital's third chamber, and will help patients with chronic wounds.
