Located on the second floor of the Medical Office Building, the St. Joseph’s Hospital Wound Care Center 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. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where our Wound Care Center can help. With the 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.
All services in the SJH Wound Care Center will be provided by Jose Diaz, Jr., M.D., who will serve as the Center's Medical Director, and Janet Alvarado, M.D. Both are physicians affiliated with the HSHS Medical Group and are on the SJH Medical Staff.
If you suffer from a chronic or non-healing wound, ask your physician about a referral to our Wound Care Center or contact us directly for an assessment. If you are a candidate for this outpatient program, the Wound Care Center will immediately work with you and your doctor to deliver the following:
