Ozark Medical Center’s Wound Care Services, managed by Healogics,
provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which
are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from
conventional treatments. Associated with diabetes, inadequate circulation,
poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower
quality of life and may lead to amputations.
Are you a candidate for specialized wound care?
When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically,
a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 14 days is
considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where our Wound Care Services can help. With the state-of-the-art
treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, special
shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds
now have a place to turn.
If you suffer from a chronic or non-healing wound, speak ask your physician
about a referral to our Wound Care Center, or contact us directly at
417-257-5946 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for an assessment.
If you are a candidate for this outpatient program, the Wound Care Center
will immediately work with you and your doctor to deliver the following:
- Advanced therapies
- Proven clinical protocols
- An individualized, comprehensive plan of care that brings you the most
appropriate and effective treatments for your specific needs
- Assessment and ongoing care by our highly skilled team of wound care specialists,

- Education for you and your family to help healing happen at home, including

you each remain informed about your progress
