The criteria for achieving the “Center of Excellence” status involves four primary tasks and key performance measures:

Millions of patients unnecessarily suffer with non-healing advanced wounds, when there is simply no need to. The Fulton & Mason County Wound Clinic offers individualized healing plans based off of the cause of the wound, age of the wound, state of the wound, and the patient’s ability to care for the wound at home. There are a variety of advanced therapies to help with hard-to-heal and chronic wounds not reacting to conservative treatment, including, but not limited to, hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
