Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine

Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine
Approximately 8 million Americans suffer from chronic wounds.
 

There are many different types of wounds, and those that won’t heal can be concerning, frustrating and time consuming to address. Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine treats these types of wounds and helps patients be their healthiest.

Three Prevea-affiliated hospitals —HSHS St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan and HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital in Oconto Falls — offer full-service wound, ostomy and hyperbaric oxygen treatments to patients in Northeast Wisconsin.

Wounds
