Lourdes’ experienced staff urges individuals with wounds that have not shown improvement in four weeks or not healed in eight weeks to seek care at a Lourdes wound center. These patients can benefit significantly from the advanced healing technologies.
Lourdes has organized these centers to treat patients who have non-healing wounds resulting from or related to:
- pressure and immobilization;
- poor circulation;
- edema or swelling;
- minor burns;
- and vascular disease.
Surgeons may refer patients directly to the center, following surgery, to enhance healing of post-operative wounds. The staffs of the Lourdes wound centers work closely with family doctors, internists, surgeons, rehabilitation services, nursing homes, and skilled-care facilities.
Most insurance plans cover wound care. The office staffs at the Lourdes centers can answer questions regarding insurance and any referrals needed for an appointment.

|Individuals who are older, who have vascular disease or who have diabetes often experience slow healing of wounds because the wound area receives poor blood flow. In addition, patients with reduced mobility often experience hard-to-healpressure ulcers.|
