Henry County Medical Center is excited to announce the launch of its new outpatient wound clinic, the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. The wound clinic at HCMC joined forces with Grace Clinic, Inc. in order to better serve Henry County. The center began seeing patients on Monday, February, 10, 2020.
HCMC Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine welcomes Lindsay Foust, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine; Alycia Gibson, PA formerly of Grace Clinic, Inc.; and Sonya Clark, Certified Wound, Ostomy, Continence Nurse. Together, with their experienced team, they are dedicated to a mission of healing.
Wounds can be difficult to heal and the longer it is open the more complications you can have. Our Outpatient Wound clinic provides treatments for multiple types of problems including burns, wounds caused from diabetes or poor circulation, bedsores, surgical incisions that are not healing, and traumatic or chronic wounds.
We offer advanced treatments such as negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, multi-layer compression wraps, and skin grafts, along with many types of dressings which can help you heal.
Services offered at the Center also include ostomy and fistula management. Patients living at home with a colostomy, ileostomy, urostomy, or fistula may have problems or need assistance with their pouching devices. We offer education, evaluation, and different pouching options for patients with a variety of ostomy needs including high output devices or convexity. Learning to live with an ostomy can be difficult for a patient and their family. Our goal is to find the right pouch for you and care for skin care problems so you can manage your ostomy at home.
“Henry County Medical Center is excited to combine services to enhance wound care for patients in Henry County and the region,” said Charles Dyer, Chief Business Development Officer. “We are pleased to partner with Dr. Russell Boyd in the new building and can’t wait to see continued growth in this service line for our patients.”
Nearly 6.5 million Americans have non-healing wounds because of diabetes, pressure ulcers, circulatory problems, or other injuries. Unlike normal wounds that your body can heal, chronic or traumatic wounds may show no signs of healing over a period of several weeks. If you have a wound that is not healing, the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine can help you. Our experts offer a comprehensive program to help patients who suffer with non-healing wounds.
