Wound Care

About Wound Care

For optimal wound healing and to minimize infection, scarring, and other complications, an effective wound care program is crucial.

Many different types of injuries will involve some level of post-incident wound care. These can include incidents like burning, surgery, persistent ulcers, edema, and traumatic wounds. Each wound requires its own unique level of care and attention to ensure it is healing in the best possible way.

Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital specializes in all forms of wound care management. Our dedicated team of highly qualified nurses, therapists and doctors are experts in ensuring wounds are clean, sterile, and being properly looked after.

5 out of 5 stars

The care that was provided by The nurses (Cindy, Felicia Ruth) and staff was exceptional. The entire staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. We received a call from Felicia the next day to check on my husband to check his pain level and do a follow up. The surgery area from check in to check out was well organized, clean, and up to date. Thank you to all of you for what you do so well and everything beyond your normal duties.
