Approximately four million Americans have wounds that do not heal. They may have diabetes, poor circulation or other health conditions that increase their risk for chronic or non-healing wounds. In addition to experiencing ongoing pain or discomfort, people with chronic wounds are often unable to fully participate in activities they once enjoyed.
Roe Outpatient Rehab Center at Livingston Regional Hospital provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment to people with either acute or chronic wounds that are difficult to heal. Our goals are to heal the patient’s wound, educate the patient about effective wound management and prevent recurrence of the wound.
