Nexus Specialty Hospital is expanding its wound care program with the opening of Nexus Specialty Clinic, a hospital-based wound care clinic in Shenandoah. Nexus Specialty Clinic will offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art wound care treatment and therapy for outpatients with complicated, non-healing wounds and chronic illness.
Nexus Specialty Clinic specializes in the treatment of the following wound types: pressure ulcers, neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, arterial and venous wounds, and compromised skin and/or wound conditions. The clinic's outpatient wound care clinic is an extension of Nexus Specialty Hospital's successful inpatient wound management program. With a facility healing percentage of 98 percent, Nexus' evidence-based wound care protocol has been nationally recognized with a Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission, officials said.
Nexus Specialty Clinic will be led by an interdisciplinary team of wound care healthcare professionals who are board-certified in family medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Osteopathic Medicine, Podiatry and Wound Care. Services provided include surgical debridement, pulsatile lavage, autologous platelet grafting, application of bioengineered skin substitutes, negative pressure wound therapy, and patient/ caregiver education.
"Nexus Specialty Clinic fills a void in the community by offering a continuum of services that emphasizes an interdisciplinary team model backed by a proven, evidence-based wound management program," explained Cindy Mostaffa, Nexus Specialty Hospital CEO.
When Nexus Specialty Clinic patients require advanced support, staff physicians can leverage all the benefits of Nexus Specialty Hospital -- dieticians, infections disease specialists, , neurologists, pulmonologists, physical, occupational and speech therapists, radiologists, plastic and vascular surgeons, and state-of-the-art imaging technology -- ensuring a seamless continuity of care and improved patient outcomes, Mostaffa added.
As a valued added service, Nexus Specialty Clinic will also provide spinal cord injury (SCI) consultations, post-acute follow up, and annual assessments. Patients diagnosed with SCI, brain injury, stroke, spina bifida, and cerebral palsy are at an increased risk for pressure ulcers and other wounds, officials said.
Located in a newly remodeled facility at 114 Vision Park Blvd., Nexus Specialty Clinic will feature dedicated exam and treatment rooms designed to accommodate bariatric patients and their family members in a friendly, compassionate, and welcoming setting, Mostaffa said.
