Wound Care Clinic
If your wound won’t heal through standard therapies, our wound care team at Westerly Hospital can help you create a personalized treatment plan to meet your unique needs. Consisting of a specially-trained Registered Nurse Practitioner, nurses and physical therapists, we also work in close collaboration with area surgeons.

Common Wound Management Indications:
- Diabetic ulcers
- Vascular ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Post-surgical wounds
- Traumatic wounds
- Other chronic, non-healing wounds
Treatment of Hard-to-Heal Wounds
Available treatment options include:
- Advanced wound dressings
- Compression wrapping
- Negative-pressure therapy
- Bioengineered tissue application
- Debridement therapy
- We also provide support for ostomy care
