Wound and Ostomy Care
Our outpatient wound and ostomy care program provides optimal management of wounds and ostomies by a professional who is trained to address these special care needs. Whether supporting a patient's return to a productive lifestyle or providing palliative care, our clinic offers interventions and cost-effective treatments to individuals with wound, ostomy or continence disorders.
Because our wound clinic is staffed by a registered nurse who is also a certified wound and ostomy nurse, we are able to provide our patients with a variety of treatment options. All care plans are under the direction of your provider.
