Heritage Valley Health System, Moon Townswip, PA, opened Heritage Valley WoundCare, located on the first floor at the Heritage Valley Beaver campus. Heritage Valley WoundCare offers patients coordinated outpatient treatment of advanced wounds.
Heritage Valley WoundCare includes an interdisciplinary staff of specialists in one location.
Four treatment rooms will be used to provide the following patient care modalities: negative blood pressure wound therapy, bioengineered tissue, debridement and wraps. For those patients who do not respond to the treatment course as expected, WoundCare has the capacity to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
"We are very excited to offer wound care services to our patient population," said Rose Nolan, chief operating officer and chief nursing officer for Heritage Valley Health System. "Until now, our patients had to travel out of our service area to other hospitals to receive wound care services. Now we can coordinate their treatment locally with their local primary care physicians to ensure the best possible outcomes."
