The Wound Care Center
Whether you’ve had a wound for a short period of time or wounds that recur over time, open wounds can interfere with work, school and other activities you want and need to do. The wound care experts at South Nassau Communities Hospital understand this. We’re experts in wound care and healing. And we are dedicated to caring for you as a whole person, keeping your goals in mind.
Our patients enjoy the success of our team approach to care, all during outpatient visits. Results include decreased pain, greater flexibility and movement, and higher quality of life. We have a cure rate of 93 percent — well above the national average. And our Wound Care Center has earned certification from The Joint Commission, a national health care quality organization, which attests to our strong commitment to excellence for everyone we serve.
Our experts use the latest tools and techniques available in wound care and repair. And our team works closely with each patient and family, so you have the information you need to take a leading role in your own recovery.
A Team Approach
The experts at the Wound Care Center include physicians, registered nurses, physical therapists, nutrition consultants, pharmacists, pain management experts and home care providers. Some wounds heal slowly or are even caused by other health conditions, such as poor blood circulation. So part of your treatment team might include other specialists, to ensure sure any other medical condition is being treated along with our focus on the wound.
Our goal is to restore patients to as active a lifestyle as possible, as quickly as possible.
