Recognizing Wound Care Awareness Month

Recognizing Wound Care Awareness Month

June 14, 2023 in News, Wound Clinic

The Wound Clinic at Regional Medical Center (RMC), a member of the Healogics network, is helping raise awareness of the risk of chronic wounds during Wound Care Awareness Month. 

Millions of people in the United States live with non-healing wounds and sadly the numbers continue to grow. Wound care experts across the nation are dedicating the entire month of June to bring awareness of how common chronic wounds are, why it’s so important to get care for them and the wound care solutions available. 

The RMC Wound Clinic offers several advanced therapies to patients suffering from chronic wounds. “Those who live with chronic wounds often have multiple medical issues that can make healing their wounds extremely challenging,” shares Dana Whalen, RMC Wound Clinic Provider. “My team and I are dedicated to staying up-to-date on processes and technology to give patients the best possible wound care.”

Untreated or improperly treated chronic wounds can decrease your quality of life and, in severe cases, result in the possible amputation of the affected limb. With this in mind, now is the time for those suffering from chronic wounds to seek advanced wound care available at the RMC Wound Clinic. Talk to your healthcare provider if you have a wound that just will not heal.
