Advanced and Evidence-Based

The Wound Care Center at Harrington offers you and your physician(s) access to state-of-the-art outpatient clinical wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

We are a designated Wound Care Center of Distinction for 2014, and a Wound Care Center of Excellence for 2015 and 2016 by our partner, Healogics.

We specialize in advanced wound care, using a variety of clinical treatments, therapies and supportive services to treat chronic wounds. Our physician-driven, multi-disciplinary approach to outpatient wound care has a superior success rate in facilitating the healing process.

Who benefits from Wound Care?

A patient may benefit from wound care treatment if they have a wound that has not begun to heal in two weeks, or is not completely healed in six weeks. In general, you are encouraged to contact a Wound Care Center physician if you notice:

  • Increasing redness around the wound
  • Warm or red skin
  • A red streak spreading from the wound
  • An increase in wound drainage
  • Pus or cloudy fluid draining from the wound
  • A foul odor or abnormal smell
  • Fever or chills
  • Increased pain
  • Tenderness at or in the area of the infected bone
  • Increasing swelling around the wound
  • The wound is getting bigger
  • The wound has blisters, black or brown dead tissue
  • Increased weakness
