London, Ky. (January 11, 2019) – Saint Joseph London celebrated the addition of its newest service line – Comprehensive Wound Care – with a ribbon-cutting celebration and open house on Thursday, January 10.

Through a partnership with Healogics, Saint Joseph London is able to provide the program to patients in the London area who are suffering from acute and chronic non-healing wounds, offering access to specialized and advanced treatment like Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatment (HBOT).

“Wound care is a critical part of the recovery process for many patients, and we are thrilled to be able to now offer this service line to help minimize the wound healing cycle for patients,” said Jean Maurice Page, MD, Medical Director of Comprehensive Wound Care at Saint Joseph London, Orthopedic Surgeon with KentuckyOne Health Orthopedic Associates in London. “If you have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days, a sore with increasing pain and redness, or a surgical wound that has become infected, you may benefit from advanced Wound Care.”

Conditions treated through this new service line include diabetic and other ulcers, venous insufficiency, traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, vasculitis, burns, persistent skin irritations and other chronic non-healing wounds.

Most of the treatments for wound care are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans. Ask your physician for a referral.
