Wound Clinic

Nearly 5 million Americans suffer from non-healing wounds caused by conditions such as diabetes, pressure ulcers, circulatory problems, burns, or injuries.

Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound. Our Wound Clinic is designed to treat individuals with these wounds.

When a wound doesn't heal, a specialized approach is required. That’s where our Wound Clinic can help. We provide advanced diagnostics, experienced staff, and the latest technological advancements which help speed up the healing process, reduce the risk for infection, and avoid hospitalization.

Our Care Team

Our care team includes your primary care provider and certified wound, ostomy, and continence specialists who provide a comprehensive medical evaluation and treatment for slow-healing wounds and address the physical, emotional and social issues of patients with ostomies and acute or chronic wounds.
