It is estimated that over 6.5 million Americans suffer from chronic or hard to heal wounds. Hospital-based Wound Care Centers are staffed with specially trained physicians and nurses who work in conjunction with the patient’s primary care physician. Together, they work to diagnosis and treat a variety of chronic, or non-healing, wounds. The wounds treated often include arterial ulcers, diabetic and neuropathic ulcers, lower extremity edema (swelling of the feet and/or ankles), pressure injuries or ulcers, problem surgical wounds, animal and insect bites, trauma wounds and venous stasis ulcers.
Shared Health Services, in conjunction with its partner hospitals, offer evidence-based wound care which is proven to reduce complications and amputations related to these chronic, non-healing wounds. During a typical visit to a Wound Care Center, a patient will undergo a complete assessment, wound measurement and photographs, debridement to aid in the removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue by surgical or other means to improve the healing potential of the remaining healthy tissue, infectious disease management, laboratory and vascular evaluation, advanced wound dressings, compression dressings, prosthetic and pressure relief assistance, negative pressure wound therapy and/or hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Upon accepting his new position, Mr. Greenlee stated, “In the continually evolving arena of wound care and hyperbaric medicine, we have to stay abreast of the changes, selectively embracing those practices that will provide better outcomes for our patients. It is also essential that we promote proven quality improvement initiatives and compliance strategies for our partner hospitals."
