Forbes Hospital Advanced Wound Healing Center

Wound care services

The Advanced Wound Healing Center is a hospital based out-patient department adjacent to Forbes Hospital. We offer services for the evaluation and management of acute and chronic non-healing wounds.

Our wound care philosophy

We understand that having a non-healing wound is often times painful, embarrassing, costly and can limit a person’s ability to function to their full potential. Wound healing is often impacted by other health problems like diabetes, heart disease, immune disorders and breathing difficulties. Certain medications can also delay the body’s ability to heal. Our main goal is to create an individual holistic plan of care in partnership with the patient, and, when possible, their caregivers, to help facilitate the wound healing process.
