Sanford Wound Care Center

The Sanford Wound Care Center offers services for both inpatient hospital care and outpatient care. Our center has a dedicated staff that is certified in wound and ostomy care. We continually strive to improve the health and wellness of our patients.

Wound care services

Sanford Wound Care Center provides comprehensive care to people with chronic or hard to heal wounds. We assist hospital nursing staff in prevention and treatment of injuries to our inpatient population, as well as offer outpatient clinic services to the community.

Many wounds are preventable, and all wounds need to be properly managed for optimal outcomes. Our certified staff is knowledgeable about up-to-date products and treatments. We incorporate a team of specialists to help treat patients with chronic or hard-to-heal wounds.

Services include:
