by Staff Reports
According to Toni Gault, director of post-acute services, the Wound Care Center will begin welcoming patients at the new location on Monday, Jan. 7.
The Wound Care Center of ARHS opened in fall 2010 to serve a growing need in the community for comprehensive, effective wound care for the residents of Watauga, Avery and Ashe, without having to travel off the mountain.
Accessed with a physician's referral, the Wound Care Center provides several therapeutic modalities to treat acute and chronic wounds including compression treatment, negative pressure wound therapy, wound irrigation and debridement. The Wound Care Center also provides Ostomy pre-op education, Stoma marking and post-op care and in the near future will be offering an ostomy support group.
Harold Frazier Jr. is the medical director of The Wound Care Center.
