At Springfield Regional Wound Care Center and Mercy Memorial Wound Care Center, we realize that non-healing wounds are serious and can lead to unnecessary scarring, infection, gangrene and even loss of limb. They can also affect you emotionally, as they hamper your health and negatively impact your quality of life. Don’t let your wound slow you down any longer.

 

We surround you with a multidisciplinary team of wound care specialists, advanced therapies and all the support you need in our new, state-of-the-art facility. Our integrated approach not only focuses on the physical aspect of your condition, but takes into consideration that those who suffer from chronic wounds are also impacted by decreased mobility, an inability to work and an increased dependency on others. 

 

As the only comprehensive, multidisciplinary program in the region, we offer the most advanced wound care therapies available — including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which is proven to radically speed the healing process. Our experts are specially trained in wound care, and will work as a team to create an individualized treatment plan just for you to safely return you to the health and mobility you deserve.

 

Talk to your doctor or call us today to schedule an appointment.
