Wound Healing Centers
Parrish Wound Healing Centers provide patients therapuetic healing environments
where they receive treatment for their chronic wounds. Our Parrish Wound
Healing Centers have been industry-recognized for excellence and continue
to be a critical medical resource for our patients throughout Brevard
County and beyond.
Parrish Wound Healing Centers are part of the Healogics network—a
collaborative collective of nearly 800 wound centers across the U.S. that
have treated approximately 2.5 million wounds. As part of this network,
we offer patients advanced care options, state-of-the-art technology,
and treatments backed by benchmarking data.
What Is a Chronic Wound?
A chronic wound is any wound that has not healed within eight weeks or
has shown no signs of healing in four weeks. There are various causes
of chronic wounds, including zinc deficiency, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis,
or vascular or arterial conditions.
Just some of chronic wounds we treat include:
- Diabetic ulcers
- Pressure ulcers (bedsores)
Treatment for chronic wounds can vary based on a patient's age, health,
and medical background. At the Parrish Wound Healing Centers, patients
will have access to a multidisciplinary staff and various treatment options,
including hyperbaric medicine.
With hyperbaric medicine, patients are placed in hyperbaric chambers where
they are exposed to a greater concentration of oxygen—which promotes
the healing process in the body. Breathing a higher concentration of oxygen
than the normal atmosphere can help wounds heal faster.
Our other chronic wound treatments include:
- Total contact casts
- Negative pressure wound therapy
- Cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes
Both our Port St. John and Titusville Wound Healing Centers have been recognized
by the nation's biggest provider of advanced wound care, Healogics,
Inc., as Centers of Distinction. Our Port St. John location was also named
a Center of Excellence. To be named for these awards, wound centers need
to achieve excellent clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, a wound-healing
rate of 91 percent or more in less than 31 median days, and the highest
levels of patient satisfaction.
Our Port St. John center has also been named for the Robert A. Warriner
III Center of Excellence award from Healogics, Inc. two years in a row.
The award is named after Dr. Warriner, the former Healogics Chief Medical
Officer and a trailblazer in the wound care field. Only 169 centers nationwide
were bestowed the Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award in 2017.
