The EMH Westlake Wound Care Center, located within the Premier Physicians Building at 25200 Center Ridge Road, opened its doors on October 7th. It brings a much-needed service to the people of Westlake and surrounding communities – currently there is no other wound care provider within the city limits.

The facility features two state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen chambers, outfitted with flat screen TVs and premium sound systems for patient enjoyment during treatments.  Whether they prefer to watch television, a DVD, or listen to a CD, patients can relax while 100 percent oxygen speeds the healing of their wounds.  Patients will also find flat screen televisions in each treatment room. The latest wound care techniques, including bioengineered tissue, will be utilized at the EMH Westlake Would Care Center.

Likely candidates for treatment at the new center are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, radiation injuries to soft tissue and bone, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven’t healed within 30 days.
