St. Joseph’s Hospital Wound Care Clinic celebrates Wound Healing Awareness Month with ribbon cutting

BUCKHANNON — St. Joseph’s Hospital Wound Care Clinic held a ribbon cutting at its new clinic and recognized June as Wound Healing Month. Wound Healing Month is meant to recognize the challenges experienced by individuals whose lives are affected daily by chronic wounds and to bring awareness to the public of the support given by certified wound specialists.

Nearly 7 million Americans are living with chronic wounds, including 2 million who are living with diabetic foot ulcers. The longer a chronic or non-healing wound goes without proper treatment, the greater the chance of infection, hospitalization or even amputation.

St. Joseph’s Wound Care Clinic treats a variety of wounds that have not started to heal within two weeks, including chronic wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical and traumatic wounds, ostomy care and arterial and venous leg ulcers.

The Wound Care Clinic is staffed by a team of providers from Podiatry, Surgery and Wound Care which includes Podiatrists Addison Michael, DPM and Jennifer Michael, DPM; General Surgeons Susan Long, MD, Steve Riddick, MD and Ross Knowles, DO; and Wound Care Specialist Bonnie Blackburn, PA-C. They provide individualized treatment plans utilizing the newest clinical tools in wound healing along with traditional clinical practices.

St. Joseph’s Wound Care Clinic is located in Building B at 10 Amalia Drive in Buckhannon. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 304-460-7461.
