Wound Care

The Center for Wound Healing is located on the first floor of the Medical Center.

The hours are typically Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 410-414-APPT.

Proper wound care is important. Ignoring problems or failing to recognize danger signs can delay healing, lead to infection and even amputation. However, proper care can speed healing, reduce pain and lessen scarring that could affect mobility.

We offer:

  • Specialized treatment of chronic/acute wounds: diabetic, arterial, venous, pressure and surgical
  • Personalized and dedicated patient care
  • Resources for diabetic foot care
  • Inpatient and outpatient services
  • Private treatment areas
  • Family and caregiver education
Coordinated care

  • Additional services: nutrition counseling, diabetic education, vascular studies, home health care and seating and positioning recommendations.
Your Out- Patient Healing Program

On your first visit, your wound and general health will be evaluated and your medical history, current medications and allergies reviewed. You may also need special tests to determine information about blood flow to the wound area. Once your test results are evaluated, an individualized treatment program will be tailored to your needs. You will continue to have regular visits to the center to provide treatment as healing progresses. You will also be given detailed instructions for your care at home.

Dr. Stephanie Hung serves as the medical director and she is a board-certified general surgeon.
