The Wound Healing Institute at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital offers a team approach to wound, ostomy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy care. Our team works to heal your wounds such as, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers, burns, non-healing surgical and/or traumatic wounds. The Wound Healing Institute's current healing rate is 8 weeks, as compared to the national average of 16 weeks. We offer an Ostomy Care Clinic, where we see individuals with ostomy self care concerns or complications and a Foot Care Clinic, where we see individuals who are unable to safely trim their own nails. We also evaluate and treat patients and residents at local skilled nursing facilities, long term care facilities and assisted living centers as well as our inpatients at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.
