The Wound Healing Center at Clark Memorial offers specialized care for wounds that aren't healing as quickly or completely as they should. The longer a wound refuses the heal, the harder it is to heal. That can impact your daily life, keeping you from enjoying the activities you love.

Our wound care team works with you to determine why your wound isn't healing, which may include different lab tests and imaging. We develop an individualized treatment plan that may involve deep tissue cleaning, surgery, and proper use of specialized dressings. We also teach you how to care for your wound at home.
If a wound doesn’t respond to the initial treatment plan, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, an advanced treatment available at the Wound Healing Center, may be an option.
Once treatment starts, most non-healing wounds take 6-8 weeks to heal. However, everyone’s situation is unique, so your wound may take longer. You can promote healing by watching for other pressure areas, keeping wounded areas clean and bandaged, choosing a healthy diet and making regular appointments to check your progress.
Most insurance plans include wound care treatment. Coverage depends on your specific plan. Please bring your insurance information with you on your first visit.
