Cuero, TX– Cuero Regional Hospital launched a Wound Treatment Center via their Outpatient Specialty Clinic in January 2022 to provide patients with access to a highly qualified wound care specialist across the rural communities they serve.
“Wound healing can become a medical problem for some individuals requiring specialized care and treatment,” said Susan Mims, PA-C, Director of the Wound Treatment Center at CRH. “We are pleased to now offer this fully-integrated, clinical wound care program in our Outpatient Specialty Clinic.” Mims shared that patients with diabetes, immobilization, and poor circulation are at greatest risk for chronic, non-healing wounds. These wounds are susceptible to infection causing pain for the patient and greatly impacting their quality of life.
“We are committed to treating chronic, non-healing wounds with the latest technologies in wound care,” said Mims. “We do this through an assessment of the wound and patient’s current overall health. We develop an individualized treatment plan for their chronic, non-healing wounds, coordinate their care with their primary care provider and work to educate the patient and their loved ones on treatment at home, as well as lifestyle adjustments they can make to promote healing.”
Appointments at the Wound Treatment Center at Cuero Regional Hospital can be made by calling 361-275-0170 or talk to your medical provider about a referral.
“Since our rural area did not have access to wound treatment options, we worked with Susan Mims to gain the skills to meet the wound treatment needs of the communities we serve,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Regional Hospital. Susan and her nurse are now both certified wound care providers, raising the level of care and options available to our patients. Cuero Regional Hospital’s new Wound Treatment Center is able to provide wound care appointments to our patients, allowing them to receive the treatment they need closer to home and in a timely manner,” said Falcone.
Those interested in seeing the wound care specialist at Cuero Regional Hospital’s Outpatient Specialty Clinic are encouraged to speak with their primary medical care provider about a referral or call 361-275-0170.
