Advanced Healthcare Services Closer to Home: Ozarks Healthcare brings Wound Care Services to Gainesville Location
As Ozarks Healthcare continues to expand, the health system is bringing advanced services, including wound care and pulmonology, to its outlying clinics. Wound care is the latest addition to health services at Ozarks Healthcare in Gainesville.
Dr. William “Andy” McGee, Medical Director of Ozarks Healthcare Wound Care, can provide specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds on site at Ozarks Healthcare in Gainesville. Chronic and non-healing wounds may include sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 14 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
“Patients can now get the same specialty wound care they need locally,” Tracy Evans, Practice Manager at Ozarks Healthcare in Gainesville, said. “This is much more convenient and affordable for our patients to not have to travel to West Plains each time they need to utilize wound care services.”
Ozarks Healthcare uses state-of-the-art treatments, including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and more to help patients heal and enjoy a better quality of life. Patients will need a referral from a provider to use wound care services from Ozarks Healthcare, but can call Ozarks Healthcare’s Wound Care Clinic (located in West Plains) at 417-257-5946 to have any questions answered.
In addition to wound care services, Ozarks Healthcare in Gainesville also offers pulmonology care. Dr. Biplab Saha, pulmonologist at Ozarks Healthcare Pulmonology, started seeing patients at Ozarks Healthcare’s locations in Gainesville, Mountain Grove, Thayer, and Winona last year. Saha can care for patients suffering from effects of tobacco or cigarette smoke, household carcinogens, outdoor air pollution, allergens, and the after-effects of COVID-19. Saha can care for Gainesville patients needing advanced bronchoscopic procedures and works with primary care providers to develop a specific care plan and continuum of care for each patient.
Dr. Edward Henegar, board-certified family physician, and Trisha Vigna, board-certified nurse practitioner, offer traditional primary healthcare services, such as treatment of common illnesses, well-child visits, health-risk assessments, immunizations, and more at Ozarks Healthcare in Gainesville.
