Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine

SM 191 LG Wound Care Logo CmykSpeare Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center, managed by Healogics™, provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments.

Chronic Wounds May Be Found In:

  • Diabetics, especially those who run with fluctuating blood sugars (or high A1c)
  • People with lower leg swelling or venous insufficiency
  • People with peripheral arterial disease (poor circulation)
  • People who develop a wound or irritation several months or years after receiving radiation treatments to that area
  • People with poor nutrition or exercise habits
  • People who are overweight or who struggle with their weight
  • People with mobility problems

Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.

If you develop a wound, our Wound Care Center® can help! 

State-Of-The-Art Treatments Available Including (but not limited to):

  • Debridement (surgical removal of dead tissue)
  • A variety of state of the art dressings designed to accommodate the different types of wound conditions
  • Biologics (a product including special ingredients to promote growth of new tissue)
  • Wound Vacs
  • Mist Therapy
  • Compression therapy including 2 layer, 3 layer and 4 layer compression wraps

People with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The Center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address total patient health.

The Wound Center works very well with primary care providers, home health and other wound facilities as well as specialty physicians such as vascular and surgical services.  We believe that it takes a team to heal a wound and one of our primary goals is to ensure that all the right people are involved in ensuring as speedy a recovery as possible from that non-healing wound.
