Brevard County Wound Healing Centers
Advanced Care from Parrish Healthcare
Parrish Healthcare has established Wound Healing Centers to provide patients
beautiful, soothing environments where they can 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.
Our 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, as well. 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.
