Nearly six million Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. Some are associated with complications from diabetes and other related vascular disorders. Other types include pressure ulcers, non-healing surgical wounds and traumatic wounds. The Terre Haute Regional Hospital Center for Wound Care uses the most up-to-date approaches to wound healing and remains current in new scientific advances in open wound care. The Center for Wound Care is a hospital-based outpatient service. Dr. Richard Reed is the Center’s Medical Director. The Center is located on the main floor of the hospital and is open Monday through Friday.
We Specialize in Healing Chronic Wounds
If you suffer from a wound that won't heal, you're not alone. Every year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions keep millions of Americans just like you from doing things they love to do. But the Center for Wound Care can help you get your life back. Our unique multidisciplinary team of dedicated doctors and nurses treats more of these wounds than anyone else. Many patients see wounds that have resisted healing after months of traditional treatment be treated and healed successfully.
When Should I Consider Using The Center for Wound Care?
If you have a sore or wound that has not begun to heal within two weeks or has not completely healed in six weeks, you should contact the Terre Haute Regional Hospital Center for Wound Care. We will coordinate your care with your primary care physician.
