body wants to heal itself. Sometimes it just needs a little
more help. When the body can’t or won’t do its
own healing, the specialists at the Wound Care Center can
help. As experts in healing chronic and hard-to-heal wounds,

of reasons. Whether you’re diabetic or bedridden, have
poor circulation, or suffer from any condition that affects

No. We also treat wounds caused by trauma, surgical complications
or a variety of medical conditions. If wounds are slow-to-heal,

Care Center’s specialty care.
Diabetics, people with spinal cord injuries, and patients
with poor circulation including peripheral vascular disease,
venous insufficiency, or collagen vascular disease are among
the those most at-risk for chronic wounds.
