TRMC opens new wound care treatment center
Troy Regional Medical Center announced today the opening of Troy Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, an outpatient facility offering a comprehensive approach for patients with non-healing wounds.
The center’s patients are examined by a physician with specialized training in wound care and evaluated for all possible related conditions, such as diabetes, that could interfere with proper healing. The care team follows evidence-based clinical pathways to determine why wounds are not healing and then develops individual treatment plans, utilizing the most effective technologies available to provide maximum healing and relief.
“We are pleased to offer this important new service to our community,” Rick Smith, TRMC Chief Executive Officer, stated. “Providing this level of life saving care close to home is the goal of Troy Regional Medical Center.”
“Between five and seven million Americans experience at least one form of a non-healing wound annually and the incidence of these wounds is increasing by approximately 10 percent each year,” Smith added. “Many of these individuals suffer from wounds that refuse to heal despite conventional treatment. These wounds seldom involve a simple answer. Patients will no longer have to travel great distances for specialized wound care. We are pleased and excited to offer this new service to the people of Troy, Pike County, and surrounding areas”
Troy Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center provides a comprehensive approach to treating patients with non-healing wounds. The team features nurses and technicians with advanced training in wound care. Troy Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and is located on the TRMC campus at 1320 Highway 231 South Suite 1. For more information about wound care or to schedule an appointment, call 334-566-0546.
