Wound Care Services
Republic County Hospital offers specialized outpatient care for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds. These wounds have often been present for several weeks and show little or no sign of improvement with standard treatment.
Wound care services promote healing and also prevent infection & re-injury.
Our multidisciplinary approach to wound care has a history of proof-positive outcomes in the healing process. Depending on the type of wound and where it is located, different treatments or techniques may be used to help your body heal.
We work closely with the patient's primary care provider, ensuring that our wound care services are customized for each individual.
Wounds that may need specialized services include, but are not limited to:
●Vascular leg ulcers
●Diabetic foot ulcers
●Burns and wounds resulting from radiation treatment
●Non-healing surgical wounds
If you are a candidate for these services, our certified wound team will work with you and your doctor to provide advanced therapies with proven clinical outcomes.
