Every person’s health is unique and each person responds differently to treatment. LCHC’s Wound Care Center is available to help you with chronic wounds that have not responded to traditional treatments.

Our Wound Care Center includes a staff of experts in a number of fields and is equipped with the technology to accelerate the healing process, reduce the risk of infection, and help patients avoid hospitalization.
