Wound Care

If you’re one of the more than five million Americans suffering from a non-healing wound, let ECHN care for you!

Individualized wound care programs can help speed the healing process.  Treatments are specifically geared to a patient’s needs, based on the type of wound and the barriers to healing.  The wound center staff works together with the patient and his or her primary physician to develop a goal-oriented, time sensitive program of wound care.  Coordinated treatment plans help to reduce pain, promote faster healing and improve activity. 

The ECHN Center for Wound Healing has eased the struggle of thousands of individuals with chronic wounds through innovative, interdisciplinary approach.  Using the latest techniques, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO), a team of medical, surgical, and nursing professionals assesses and treats wound conditions.
