Wound & Ostomy Services
If you have a wound that won't heal, we can help. The five hospitals within Samaritan Health Services have special clinics to treat acute or chronic wounds caused by diabetes, surgery, injury, poor circulation or other problems.
Our clinics have certified wound specialists who can offer advanced wound care, as well as care and treatment of tubes and ostomies, a surgically created opening in the body for the discharge of body wastes. Services within our clinics include debridement (removal of dead tissue), laboratory cultures, negative pressure therapy, and low intensity and frequency ultrasound. Our hospitals also offer services such as diabetic education, physical therapy and imaging services including nuclear medicine and radiology.
If you have a urostomy, ileostomy or colostomy pouch, we can assist you with adhesion or skin problems, as well as obtaining the appropriate supplies for your condition.
A referral from your health care provider is required. If you have a wound that hasn't begun to heal after a month, or isn't completely healed within two months, ask your health care provider about wound care through our hospitals.
