Non-healing and chronic wounds are very serious medical conditions. Untreated or undertreated wounds can take a toll on your quality of life, and in some cases, even lead to limb loss. Getting quick treatment for hard-to-heal wounds is key to a healthy outcome.
Wound care specialists at Beacon Health System offer a wide range of wound care therapies and treatments to help you heal faster.
Our specialists evaluate your individual needs, thoroughly discuss treatment options and provide personalized care plans.
A physician referral for wound care services is required.
