Wound Care Center

The Wound Care Center at Northern Regional Hospital is an outpatient, hospital-affiliated program to provide treatment for problem wounds. Patients are referred by their primary care or other specialty physician. The program operates by appointment.  A state-of-the-art facility, the Center provides the most advanced therapies and the latest clinical modalities to treat problem wounds.

Incidences of problem wounds are on the rise due largely to an aging population and an increase in diabetes. For example, approximately 18.5 million Americans have diabetes and, of that population, about 1.8 million will suffer from a problem wound.  For most people, cuts and scratches heal within days or weeks. But for those whose natural healing process is hampered, a simple sore can become a complex medical problem. Without proper treatment, these problem wounds can hamper physical activity, quality of life and, in some cases, be debilitating.


The Center employs the most technologically advanced wound care therapy. There are multiple diagnostic and treatment modalities depending on the situation. These include infectious disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, nuclear medicine, radiology and debridement.
