Mercy Medical Center’s Wound Care Center is dedicated to the provision of state-of-the-art, outpatient clinical wound care. The coordinated use of a variety of clinical treatments, debridement, medicines, dressings and support services to treat problem wounds has proven highly effective in facilitating the healing process. Patient care at the Wound Care Center focuses on a whole body approach to wound healing.

When to Utilize the Center

Any patient with a wound that has not started to heal in two weeks or is not completely healed in six weeks may be a candidate for the Wound Care Center. The staff at the Center specializes in the treatment of problem wounds. Some of the indications for wound therapy are:

Approved Indications

The Center utilizes the newest clinical tools in wound healing along with traditional clinical practices including:

  • Pressure ulcers
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Neuropathic ulcers
  • Ischemic ulcers
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Surgical wounds
  • Vasculitis
  • Burns
  • Peristomal skin irritations
  • Other chronic, non-healing wounds

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

In addition to our standard wound care practices, we also utilize Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - allowing the patient to breathe 100% oxygen, which is effective in healing wounds that haven't responded to conventional wound care, and accelerates healing in highly infected wounds.

Specialized Physicians

Patients meet with our medical staff for a consultation, including an examination and medical history evaluation. You, along with our wound care team, will establish a treatment plan.
