Expert Care for Patients with Non-Healing Wounds
Patients who have chronic, non-healing wounds can find both hope and healing in The Wound Care Center® at Joint Township District Memorial Hospital. Our staff takes an individualized approach to developing a plan to address what can be a time-consuming and aggravating situation.
We start by giving the patient a thorough diagnostic exam to identify the type of wound and its underlying causes. Then we identify the most efficacious treatments, which may include vascular evaluation, debridement, diabetic education, infectious disease management, nuclear medicine, nutrition management, pain management, physical therapy and radiology.
As part of your treatment plan, you will have regular appointments at the Wound Care Center and receive all of the information you need to take care of your wound at home between visits. Information for Patients.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy designed to maximize patient comfort
As part of your treatment plan, we may refer you for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which involves breathing pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. We have partnered with nationally recognized Healogics, a leader in the clinical treatment of chronic wounds and the adjunctive use of HBOT. This therapy quickly and safely delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream, enhancing your body’s own natural healing abilities.
To provide you with the greatest possible comfort during the procedure, the hyperbaric chamber is in a comfortable treatment room equipped with TV and videos and clear sides through which you can see your surroundings.
