Wound Care Center opens in Milford


Staff Report

Individuals struggling with chronic wounds in southern Delaware now have a location closer to home to go to for advanced healing. Bayhealth is proud to announce the opening of the Wound Care Center at Milford Memorial on February 1, 2017.

Living with painful wounds can be a thing of the past. Bayhealth’s wound care teams work with patients to heal diabetic, neuropathic, pressure and ischemic ulcers. Treatment is also available for venous insufficiency, traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, and skin irritations. Advanced wound treatment using hyperbaric oxygen therapy is available at the Bayhealth Kent General location only.

Since the Wound Care Center at Kent General opened in August 2008, there have been 4,120 new patients, 39,951 wound care encounters, and 6,590 hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments. Based on the results thus far at the Kent campus, positive outcomes are expected at the new center.

Bayhealth Clinical Nurse Coordinator Julie Willey, RN, said she is thrilled for the new Wound Care Center in Milford. “As a life-long resident of Sussex County, I am super excited that Bayhealth is opening a Wound Care Center in Milford,” she said. “I believe the residents will be impressed with the care we can provide based solely on the clinical outcomes we have retained at Kent General.”

Both centers will be run by Medical Director John F. Glenn, MD. All of the treatment options offered in the Wound Care Center at Kent will be available to patients in Milford except hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). HBOT is still available at Kent.

Bayhealth’s Wound Care Centers are members of the Healogics network.
