Jennie Stuart Medical Center is partnering with a national corporation for the opening of a local wound care center.
A news release says Jennie Stuart is partnering with National Health Corporation of Jacksonville, Florida to launch a comprehensive, wound care program. National Health is the world’s largest provider of hospital-based outpatient managed wound care centers and treated more than one million wounds last year.
Officials at the local hospital say the Wound Healing Center is under construction on the ground floor of Jennie Stuart at the Outpatient Procedure entrance on High Street. The center will specialize in the treatment of non-chronic wounds and non-responsive conditions.
The cost to build and equip the center is listed at $400,000 and it is expected to open in June.
