Does insurance cover treatment?
Many health plans cover Wound Care Center treatments. We can help you determine what your specific plan covers.
What can I expect at the first appointment?
The first appointment consists of an in-depth assessment by our wound care team, a review of your medial history, blood tests or additional tests if needed, and recommendations for your treatment plan. Please bring your medial records, insurance card, a list of all mediations you are taking, and a list of allergies you may have to the first appointment. Expect to spend several hours at the Center.
What causes non-healing wounds?
Chronic and non-healing wound can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers, commonly know as bed sores). People with diabetes are at particular risk. If you have a wound that won’t heal, you are not alone. Approximately 7 million Americans experience this condition. The good news is that you no longer have to suffer. The Wound Care Center at Union Hospital not only uses among the most advanced therapies available for healing, but it also addresses the underlying cause of the wound – for example, nutrition, lack of exercise, hygiene, ill-fitting shoes – to help eliminate recurrence.
