Wound Healing Center
Allegan General Hospital’s Wound Healing Center, managed by Healogics, Inc.
, 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.
That's where our Wound Healing Center can help. With state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds have a place to turn. The Center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetes education, and other areas to address total patient health.
