It is our goal to make wound care treatments convenient for patients and case updates accessible to healthcare providers. Located just across from the main hospital, the Wound Care Center offers free parking for our patients. Our wound care experts provide detailed reports with quick turnaround times, and we staff two medical directors who discuss patient cases with referring providers.
Advanced wound care therapy
Our Wound Care Center is staffed by a highly skilled team of certified wound care nurses, specially trained in addressing acute and infected wounds and all phases of healing. We are proud to use the latest research-proven products in our wound care therapies, such as moisture-retentive dressings, silver technology dressings and human growth factor topical gels.
Education and support for patients
Our on-site certified diabetes educator and nutritional specialist help educate and support wound care patients. Education is the key to preventing hard-to-heal wounds from developing and reoccurring. During one-on-one patient meetings, we address a wide variety of subjects, including diabetes control, smoking cessation, nutrition, infection, medication awareness and other subjects related to wound healing.
