Center for Wound Healing

There’s no longer any reason to live with an open sore.

The Center for Wound Healing at Knox Community Hospital offers specialized outpatient care for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds. These wounds have often been present for several weeks and show little or no sign of improvement with standard treatment. Underlying causes of these wounds can be diabetes, circulatory disease, or radiation burns, among other things.

Our specialized care is covered by most insurance plans and Medicare; physician referral is not required.

Specialists working together for you.

Our Center is staffed with a unique team of doctors and nurses, all dedicated to healing chronic wounds. We have all the latest techniques and technologies, including hyperbaric oxygen chambers, to treat your hard-to-heal wounds. We are expert at caring for people whose open sores have resisted traditional treatment.

At the Center for Wound Healing, you will receive the right treatment to heal your wound.

The following services are available:

  • Debridement (removal of dead or damaged tissue)
  • Specially chosen dressings and wraps
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Bio-engineered tissue substitutes
  • Platelet growth technologies

The Knox Community Hospital Wound Care Center®

The Center for Wound Healing at Knox managed by Healogics, Inc., provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments.  Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. 

That's where our Wound Care Center® can help. With state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The Center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetes education, and other areas to address total patient health.
