The Christian County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning to celebrate the opening of a state of the art Wound Healing Center at Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
The wound center is located on the ground floor of the hospital at the Outpatient Procedures entrance on High Street.
JSMC’s clinical partner for wound services is Healogics, Inc., formerly National Healing Corp. which is considered to be the world’s largest provider of hospital based outpatient managed wound care centers and treated more than one million wounds last year.
Jennie Stuart President and CEO, Eric Lee says the center will provide innovative treatment services for years to come.
Officials say the cost to build and equip the Wound Healing Center was about $400,000 with half of the cost going towards purchasing the two hyperbaric chambers.
