If you have a wound or sore that hasn't healed with treatment, you may need expert care to assist the healing process. The Wound Care Clinic at Providence offers a team of doctors, nurses and technicians that works together to help you heal. We use the latest approaches in wound healing and develop a customized treatment plan to help you feel better fast.

When a wound doesn’t heal and isn’t responding to treatment within 30 days, it’s considered a chronic or nonhealing wound. Sores need blood circulation to heal, and some health problems affect blood flow and make it harder for your body to heal. Diabetes, kidney disease, peripheral artery disease or damaged blood vessels can all slow down recovery.

We treat many types of chronic wounds, including:

  • Arterial and venous ulcers (damage to arteries and veins)
  • Diabetic ulcers on the legs and feet
  • Nonhealing surgical wounds and skin grafts
  • Pressure ulcers (bed sores)
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Infected wounds
  • Wounds from radiation therapy

Our wound care specialists can treat even the most difficult-to-heal wounds. We draw from the latest approaches in wound healing to create a treatment plan that will help you feel better as quickly as possible. Your team will show you how to care for your wound and let you know what improves — and what slows — healing.
