Wound Care Center ribbon cutting Aug. 14
Bolingbrook – Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital will host a ribbon cutting Aug. 14 to officially open its new Wound Care Center.
The event will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. Aug. 14 at the center, 420 Remington Blvd., Suite 110. The center is located in the professional office building beside the hospital.
Festivities begin with a ribbon cutting at 3 p.m., followed by an open house tour of the new facility. To RSVP for the event, please call (630) 856-7525.
The hospital’s new Wound Care Center, which opens for business on Aug. 6, houses two hyperbaric chambers and four treatment rooms. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps heal wounds from the inside out. This approach can reduce swelling, fight infection and build new blood vessels, helping produce healthy tissue.
An outpatient, hospital-based program, the Wound Care Center works in conjunction with a patient’s primary care physician. The center specializes in the treatment of problem wounds.
Dr. Anjum Owaisi will serve as the program’s medical director, while Char Murillo will serve as the Wound Care Center program director. The center will include a team of experienced physicians that specialize in general surgery, infectious disease, internal medicine, podiatry and orthopedic surgery.
“Our physicians and nurses will provide a program very much needed within the community,” Owaisi said. “We want to provide comprehensive treatment and care, and we look forward to providing the service our patients need.”
The program operates by appointment and requires a referral from the primary care physician. For more information, visit www.keepingyouwell.com/abh.
