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.

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.
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.
