Wound Healing Center at VGH
Everyone has heard that time heals all wounds, but the truth of the matter is that without advanced therapies, some wounds can take years and even decades to heal. The Wound Healing Center at Valley General Hospital offers the community state-of-the-art specialized wound healing care.
With the rising rate of diabetes, there is a great need for specialized care centers that can treat ulcers associated with the disease as well as help patients with other skin, bone and tissue conditions. To establish the center, VGH has partnered with National Healing Corporation, which manages other wound healing centers nationwide.
The center’s doctors and clinical staff are skilled in the latest therapeutic methods of wound management. Patients will be treated with state-of-the-art technology from having their progress charted through digital photographs to, in some cases, being treated in the center’s hyperbaric oxygen chambers.

FAQs – Wound Healing Center at VGH
What should I expect at my first appointment?
What is and will I need hyperbaric treatments?
Hyperbaric treatments are for approximately 10 percent of those that suffer wound healing issues. The majority of our patients will not need hyperbaric, but for those that do, this state-of-the-art technology is a huge benefit to the community. Patients needing hyperbaric to treat their wound need daily treatments. Having the technology close to home is a great relief to those needing the treatment.
