Yakima Wound Care Services

A wound that wonít heal needs more than just a bandage. It needs the attention, expertise and compassion of a wound care team.

Central Washington residents suffering from hard-to-heal wounds can now find a wound center right in their backyard. Memorial Hospitalís wound center provides patients with a team of highly-trained physicians, nurses, and technicians who are skilled in helping sufferers get their lives back. They specialize in non-healing wounds Ė those that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment.

When you are referred to Memorialís wound center, a whole team of professionals works together to assess your wound and provide input regarding your treatment. Working with the patientís physician, the team develops an individualized plan that combines traditional practices with state-of-the-art technology to ensure that chronic wounds no longer mean perpetual suffering.

Memorialís Wound Management Services combine traditional practices and medicines for wound healing with state-of-the-art technology, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy. By using well-researched, proven techniques, the wound centerís multi-disciplinary team provides healing and relief for patients who previously thought their wounds were irreparable or might ultimately result in amputation.

Memorial opened its clinic in late 1999, and within a year the countyís amputation rate shrank by 50 percent.

Memorialís wound care team specializes in treatment of:

  • Diabetic ulcers.
  • Burn wounds.
  • Pressure ulcers.
  • Wounds associated with radiation treatment.
  • Surgical wounds and infections.
  • Trauma.
  • Bone infections.
  • Gangrene.
  • Wounds associated with skin grafts.
