Regional Wound Care Center
HSHS St. John’s Regional Wound Care Center, located in St. John's Pavilion, provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments.
With state-of-the-art treatments available, including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The Center also features two hyperbaric oxygen chambers that deliver high pressure oxygen in a safely controlled environment. Evidence shows that hyperbaric oxygen therapy, when used correctly, results in more timely healing of non-healing wounds.
Specialists who provide care at the Center work closely with the patient’s primary care physician and track the patient’s progress by several outcome measures, including digital imaging processes. Information regarding the patient's progress, along with updated photos of the wound, are submitted to the referring physician on an ongoing basis.
A physician’s referral is not required to obtain care at the Regional Wound Care Center. For more information, call (217) 757-6644.
