The Regional Wound Healing Center of the Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System is a physician-led, technologically advanced, outpatient center designed specifically for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds. The Regional Wound Healing Center helps patients with diabetes, poor vascular circulation, infections, insect bites and other conditions that lead to persistent wounds resistant to conventional therapies.
AN EXPERT DEDICATED STAFF
The Regional Wound Healing Center is staffed by a team of experienced and certified physicians dedicated to promoting the healing of chronic sores, ulcers and wounds in a caring environment. Specially trained Registered Nurses serve as case managers, providing expert care with a comforting personal touch.
STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENT AND METHODOLOGY
We care for patients of all ages suffering from wounds of all shapes and sizes by applying leading-edge healing methodology and utilizing the latest diagnostic and treatment equipment to bring a unified approach to wound management. Patients are evaluated to determine the presence of any underlying physical conditions that may inhibit the natural healing process. From initial appraisal, to diagnostic testing, to custom treatment programs, to on going education and counseling, patients receive the finest care available.
A TEAM APPROACH TO HEALING AND WELLNESS
Our expert staff works closely with the referring physician as part of a coordinated interdisciplinary wellness team. Our integrated healing program includes continuing care from the patient's family doctor, scheduled visits to the Regional Wound Healing Center and a home treatment program. The primary-care physician continues to direct the patients overall care, while the Regional Wound Healing Center staff provides the physician with comprehensive progress reports throughout the course of treatment.
A PATIENT-CENTRIC PHILOSOPHY
The Regional Wound Healing Center emphasizes the philosophy that the patient's role in dressing, cleaning and protecting a wound is vital to a successful healing program. We provide the individualized education and training patients and their caregivers need to speed the healing process. Our structured regimen also helps prevent reoccurrences.
