Neshoba General Wound Care Clinic of Philadelphia Partners with Healogics  to offer leading edge wound care using state-of-the-art technology

Neshoba General Wound Care Clinic located at 1001 Holland Avenue inside Neshoba General is now offering advanced wound care for people living with chronic, non-healing wounds. Neshoba General has recently partnered with Healogics, the nation’s leading provider of advanced, chronic wound care services. Healogics is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, and has a nationwide network of over 600 Wound Care Centers.

It is estimated that chronic wounds affect 6.7 million people in the U.S. and that number is rising, fueled by an aging population, and increasing rates of conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and the latest effects of radiation therapy. If left untreated chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb.

“Neshoba General had an excellent area inside the facility to expand present services provided in our Wound Care Center, with an outstanding team in place to make this a smooth transition”, said Annette Watkins, Director of Public Relations, and Marketing. Understanding that unity is strength and collaboration is power, Neshoba General and Healogics working together have an excellent opportunity to enhance the delivery of comprehensive and quality wound care for Neshoba and surrounding communities” said Watkins.

Neshoba General Wound Care Clinic offers an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care. A patient’s individualized treatment plan may include specialized wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, advanced cellular products and topical growth factors, edema management and/or non-invasive vascular assessment. These treatments are the result of a team approach between the Center’s physicians, nurses, and the referring physician. A treatment plan is developed and scheduled based on the patient’s needs. Once treatment is complete, the patient will return to their primary physician to continue routine care.

Additionally, Neshoba General Wound Care Clinic will be equipped with Healogics newest technologies: Clinical Optimization and Decision Support. These applications on Healogics’ Wound Suite platform, enable the critical connection between people living with chronic wounds and their multi-disciplinary healthcare team for collaborative, evidence-based, patient-centered care.

With our commitment to research and innovation, we are dedicated to delivering top-notch care and better outcomes for our community.
