"We are striving to be wound healing experts, healing more wounds and changing more lives. The Pineville location will provide comprehensive wound care management to treat and heal chronic wounds.”
Carolinas HealthCare System
Carolinas HealthCare System opened a new wound care center that brings quality wound care to South Charlotte, York and Lancaster counties. Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care, a facility of Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville, opened for patients November 14.
Located at 7108 Pineville-Matthews Road, the new facility offers the most up-to-date technologies to patients in need of wound healing. Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care is staffed with four nationally certified wound care physicians, along with specialty trained nurses and technicians who provide advanced wound care for those dealing with chronic wounds.
“There is a growing need and demand for wound care in our community,” said Ronnie O’Regan, director of Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care, a facility of CMC-Pineville. “Many people have experienced having a chronic wound or know someone that has, and they understand the need for immediate care and the prevention of potential amputations. We are striving to be wound healing experts, healing more wounds and changing more lives. The Pineville location will provide comprehensive wound care management to treat and heal chronic wounds.”
Full Range of Treatments
Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care will provide chronic wound treatments, many associated with complications from diabetes, vascular disorders and traumatic injuries. The types of wounds that can benefit from these treatments include:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Venous stasis wounds
- Pressure ulcers
- Wounds resulting from traumatic injury or incisional breakdown
The new facility offers two chambers for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), an advanced therapy for patients who suffer from chronic wounds that are not responding to traditional therapies. Patients are placed in a pressurized chamber where they breathe 100 percent oxygen. The treatment delivers more oxygen to the body's tissues, helping to heal wounds, save limbs and repair extensive tissue or bone damage.
“I have the highest expectations that we can take the best wound healing technologies from all of these centers and focus it in the Pineville wound clinic,” said William Moose, MD, medical director of the center. “We are bringing together years of medical experience as well as management savvy and cutting-edge wound healing technology to provide the best possible successes for our patients.”
Carolinas HealthCare System has a total of 15 hyperbaric oxygen therapy chambers and 25 treatment rooms throughout the System.
