About the Wound Care Centre
The Wound Care Centre provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which can lead to lower quality of life and sometimes amputation. Persistent wounds require a specialized approach to heal. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where our Wound Care Centre can help. Through a partnership with Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound healing services with 500 Wound Care Centers® and a network of wound specialists, Havasu Regional Medical Center is able to offer state-of-the-art treatments to people with non-healing and chronic wounds.
