The center treats patients with chronic and advanced conditions which have not responded to previous therapies. After performing a thorough exam of a new patient's wound, including taking photographs to track wound healing progress, the center's clinical staff becomes a partner with the patient's doctor.
Through regular reports and phone calls, the center works with the patient’s doctors and other experts in the program to develop a total approach to treatment and care.
Evidence-based and best practice driven treatments mean patients do not undergo any treatment or progress to a new level of treatment until the need is clearly indicated. Patients may self-refer; in most instances treatments are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance plans without requiring a referral.
Physicians, nurses and technicians are trained in the latest therapeutic methods in wound management as well as updated with breaking information about the industry, policies and procedures.
The center's clinical staff has the opportunity to receive more than 40 hours of advanced training at the National Healing Institute at The Ohio State University.
