Ozarks Healthcare Wound Care
Ozarks Healthcare's Wound Care Services, managed by Healogics®, 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 diabetes, inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations.
Are you a candidate for specialized wound care?
When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 14 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where our Wound Care Services can help. With the state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn.
If you suffer from a chronic or non-healing wound, speak ask your physician about a referral to our Wound Care Center, or contact us directly at 417-257-5946 for an assessment.
