PCMH opens wound care center
Pike County Memorial Hospital ER entrance
Pike County Memorial Hospital is proud to announce the opening of its new outpatient wound care center.
The wound care clinic provides outpatient services to people with chronic or hard to heal wounds. Chronic wounds include amputations, infections, surgical wounds and ulcers that don’t completely heal within eight weeks.
Last year, the U.S. treated over eight million people suffering from chronic wounds, and that number is growing due to complications such as diabetes, obesity and cancer treatment.
The staff of medical professionals at PCMH has had extensive training in wound care and brings a comprehensive range of services to the community. The goal of the wound center is to significantly increase the wound healing rate of patients and help the patients avoid unnecessary amputation.
The wound care center is a joint effort with Wound Care Specialists, a national wound care company helping hospitals and long term care facilities develop comprehensive wound care programs for advanced wound healing and limb preservation. Wound Care Specialists has opened more than 80 wound care centers nationwide and has an average healing rate of 90 percent.
