RMC’s Wound Healing Center is part of the National Healing Corporation, which has a success rate of 94 percent wounds healed in 12 to 16 weeks. This specialized area, located in the Tyler Center, offers high quality care to patients suffering from wounds that have not responded to traditional treatment. In addition to other progressive treatments, the center offers state-of-the-art Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, which is particularly useful for diabetes patients.
Before any treatment begins, our team of doctors, nurses and therapists will thoroughly evaluate your wound, as well as review your health and medical history. Tests may be conducted to determine your blood flow and to see whether or not any infection is present.
Together with your doctor, RMC will develop a treatment program based on your individual needs. We will monitor your progress on a detailed basis, make adjustments accordingly and report all findings to your doctor. Once your wound has healed, you will return to your doctor for any necessary follow-up care.
Most treatments at the center are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans. To seek treatment at RMC’s Wound Healing Center, simply call your doctor or make an appointment directly at (256) 741-6070.
The Wound Healing Center is located on the RMC main campus in the Tyler Center building.
