Established in 2012 with the mission of providing expert wound care and feeding tube services at the bedside of the patient, we have used evidence-based clinical pathways and expedited the healing of wounds. We have raised the level of quality of wound care provided to the patients. WCS has wound healing rates that have remained consistently at or above the national benchmark. Highly coordinated care is inbuilt and streamlined in the patient's weekly wound maintenance encounters, especially with multiple chronic comorbid conditions. The efficiency of care provided by our clinicians reduces overall costs, time, and energy of the patient, insurance carriers, caregivers and the entire health care system as a whole. Our vision is to improve the quality of life of our patients above and beyond the standards of practice.
WCS provides clinical expertise through:
- Weekly PA/NP evaluation based on complexity.
- G-tube or PEG replacement with radiologist read on the same day – available seven days a week.
- Assessment and treatment of all wound types including (Pressure Ulcers- Stages I-IV, Non-Pressure- Arterial, Diabetic, Venous and Postsurgical Wounds)
- All patients receive the same quality of care, regardless of payer source. We accept Medicare, Medi-Medi, PPO, HMOs, and IPAs with approved authorization.
- Continued quality measures and improvement activities in built in our practice protocol.
- Physicians recommend generic dressings keeping wound dressing supplies costs contained
- We work as part of a wound care team with your nurses to improve healing rates.
- Physicians may incorporate dietician consult and IV antibiotic therapy if clinically necessary
- Physician documentation and orders supporting your care are completed and returned within 24 hours of our provider's encounter with the patient.
