The Washington Health System Wound and Skin Healing Centers (WSHC) are located in Washington and Greene Counties. The Centers provide specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds such as pressure ulcers (bedsores), arterial ulcers due to poor blood flow or circulation; diabetic foot ulcers and venous stasis ulcers due to incompetent veins.
The Wound and Skin Healing Centers use the most advanced therapies available for wound healing. Our Team of physicians and nurses address the underlying cause of the wound including nutrition, ill-fitting shoes and braces, poor blood flow, lack of exercise, uncontrolled symptoms of another disease process.
Remember – You’re a Vital Part of the Healing Team
The success of your treatment will depend on your participation. You and your family will learn about caring for your wound at home, including how to change dressings and how to protect the wound from further injuries. It’s important to keep your appointments, follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely between visits. We’re here to answer questions and give you the support you need to heal.
