About the RGH Wound Care Center at St. Ann’s

Wounds that take longer than 28 days to heal can be considered chronic and may be attributed to inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, lack of mobility, and underlying illnesses, all of which can result in a lowered quality of life.

Commitment to quality and compassionate care

When treating patients with wounds that do not respond to traditional care, our highly skilled and compassionate wound care treatment team is committed to providing the quality care that will lead to successful outcomes and an improved quality of life.

An important part of this quality care includes our patient evaluations. They are an essential component in the preparation of individualized and comprehensive treatment plans for our patients.

  • Case Managers to oversee every aspect of a patient's treatment
