Wound Care

Chronic wounds affect nearly 6.7 million people in the U.S.  That number is on the rise, fueled by an aging population, and increased rates of conditions like diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy. Left untreated, chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and in the worst cases, amputation of the affected limb.

Magruder Hospital has recently partnered with the nation’s leading provider of advanced, chronic wound care services, Healogics, to bring the best in wound care healing to our community. The Wound Healing Center at Magruder offers an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care. A patient’s individualized treatment plan may include specialized wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, advanced cellular products and topical growth factors, edema management and/or non-invasive vascular assessment. 

Additionally, the Wound Healing Center will be equipped with Healogics newest technologies: Clinical OptimizationSM and Decision SupportSM. These applications on Healogics’ WoundSuiteSM platform, enable the critical connection between people living with chronic wounds and their multi-disciplinary healthcare team for collaborative, evidence-based, patient-centered care. Treatments are the result of a team approach between the Center’s physicians, nurses and the patient’s referring physician. Once treatment is complete, the patient will return to their primary physician to continue routine care.

Candidates for wound treatment include those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven’t healed within a reasonable time frame. People with wounds that have not improved with traditional methods of treatment may benefit from a visit to the Wound Healing Center.  Every wound has its unique set of circumstances. Our Wound Healing Center is equipped and staffed to address them all, with most treatments covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs, and other private insurance plans. 

The Center will be open five days a week and located at 611 Fulton Street, Suite E., in the medical office building on Magruder’s campus.  Call the Wound Healing Center at 419-301-4380 or ask your doctor for a referral and let us show you how to reclaim your life.
