Multi-team Care Approach

A Multi-disciplinary Approach

Each patient undergoes a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound and the underlying problem(s) causing the wound and hindering healing. After this, a program specifically tailored to the patients’ needs is initiated based on the most effective treatment options. The treatment may include:

  • Infectious disease management 
  • Physical therapy
  • Radiology
  • Pain management 
  • Vascular evaluation
  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Diabetes education
  • Nutrition management
  • Debridement
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Because PWHC is an outpatient member of the Peninsula Regional Health System and located within Peninsula Regional Medical Center, it has access to specialists in fields like:

  • Vascular Surgery
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Endocrinology
  • Cardiology
  • Oncology
  • And many more

No matter how many physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals become involved in the care process, the patient remains the core member of the care team.
