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:
