Individuals who suffer from numerous injuries and diseases often develop acute and chronic hard-to-heal wounds. DeGraff Memorial Hospital is now offering a wound care clinic to provide specialized treatment for those individuals.

Open twice a week, the outpatient clinic located at DeGraff will offer treatment for those with diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical or traumatic wounds, and venous or arterial wounds (leg ulcers caused by inadequate blood flow). Skin breakdown caused from cancer, radiation treatment, burns and infections will also be treated.

The wound care clinic is another enhanced program that DeGraff offers to improve the health care services available to the local community and surrounding areas. The facility also recently opened an acute care for the elderly unit, where a specialized team approach to hospitalization for the elderly is delivered with the ultimate goal of providing the safest discharge to the community with less hospital re-admissions.

The Wound Care Clinic at DeGraff is currently accepting new patients with appointments available Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Call 716-690-2625 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

DeGraff Memorial Hospital is located at 445 Tremont St., North Tonawanda.
