The Advanced Wound Center
The Advanced Wound Center at Mission Regional Medical Center is an outpatient program that provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing.
Through a partnership with Healogics, Mission Regional Medical Center is able to offer a comprehensive center offering specialized wound care. Healogics is the world’s largest wound care management company with nearly 800 hospital partners delivering excellent evidence-based care to patients with chronic wounds. Healogics has been the leader in wound care for nearly 20 years, offering the most advanced modalities such as adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
Patients at Mission Regional Medical Center receive the highest quality chronic wound treatment available.
Types of Wounds
A chronic, non-healing wound is not a disease, but rather a result of one or more underlying conditions. Non-healing wounds require specialized wound care because of their underlying causes and their failure to proceed through an orderly and timely set of healing stages.
