Wound Care

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions which can slow the body’s healing process.

These wounds can not only cause severe health risks but can also reduce the patients’ quality of life by causing pain and discomfort, reduced mobility and the fear of amputation.

Treating a wound that won’t heal can be frustrating, expensive and time-consuming. That’s where the Wound Care Department at MidCoast Health System Hospitals comes in.

We offer a comprehensive and individualized approach to wound care using evidence-based treatment and advanced therapies in Wharton, Matagorda, and surrounding counties.
