Our wound treatments

Patients who arrive at West Jefferson Medical Center seeking treatment for a wound will be thoroughly examined by our wound care team. These professionals will assess the condition of the wound and determine the best course of action to treat it. We take care to fully explain the appropriate treatment options and inform patients of what needs to be done to help their wounds heal properly.
