At the St. Elizabeth Healthcare Wound Care Center, each patient is evaluated to find any medical conditions that might block the natural healing process. Our wound care providers will coordinate your treatment with your primary care physician and specialists, understanding that wounds often require complex and long-term treatment. Results and updates will be given directly to your physician, home health agency, nursing facility, or extended care center.
In addition to treatment for your non-healing wound, the St. Elizabeth Healthcare Wound Care Center’s healthcare educators will also provide recommendations on how to care for your wound at home, as well as information on nutrition, physical therapy aids and diabetes management to help aid the healing process and prevent future wounds.

- Wound dressing and wraps
- Debridement of necrotic tissue
- Compression therapy
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)
- Prescriptive growth factors
- Bio-engineered skin grafting
