Wound Care Center
If you have a sore or wound that has not started to heal significantly in a month, or healed entirely in two months, you should ask your doctor about The Wound Care Center at River Parishes Hospital.
Every year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions keep about 3 to 4 million Americans from doing the things they love to do. The Wound Care Center program helps many of these patients recover in just a few months.
The staff at The Wound Care Center will discuss your treatment program with your primary care physician and will keep him or her updated on your progress. Other specialists may be consulted based on your treatment needs. Our team works with nurses, physical therapists and dietitians who are specially trained to treat patients with non-healing wounds. Plus, many health plans cover wound care treatment.
