Ascension Medical Group Sacred Heart Surgical Services at Port St. Joe
What type of appointment would you like to book?
We are a specialized outpatient wound care treatment center dedicated to the care of patients with wounds. Wounds that are hard-to-heal or non-healing may be a result of pressure, trauma or infection. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem due to underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment.
Since non-healing wounds rarely result from a single cause, we treat the whole person, not just the wound. Our team of experienced wound care specialists will assess your symptoms to determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound. Together, we will create a care plan to stimulate healing.
Our care plans are personalized to complement the care you are receiving from your doctor. We work as a team to provide the most effective treatment.
Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may affect your quality of life. If you have a wound or an ulcer that is not healing, or any wound that is of concern, ask your doctor for a referral to the wound care center or call 850-229-5833 to schedule an appointment.
