With life-threatening chronic wounds on the rise, there is a greater need for an integrated approach to healing in a timely, cost-effective manner. Wound healing centers often collaborate across multiple specialties in an effort to reduce the risk of complications and amputations. The Silver Cross Center for Advanced Wound Healing staff includes clinicians with advanced training who are the cornerstones in the treatment of patients with problem wounds.

At the Center for Advanced Wound Healing, the staff focuses on “continuity of care,” meaning that patients will be seen and treated by the same team at each visit, making the healing process less stressful on the patient and encouraging better outcomes. They are dedicated to creating a cohesive plan for treatment and maintaining consistent communication to best meet the patient’s needs.

The Center for Advanced Wound Healing at Silver Cross Hospital treats many types of wounds. The approach to wound care is aggressive and comprehensive, yet caring and comforting. The center coordinates traditional and advanced therapies that aid and accelerate the healing process, such as, the application of skin substitutes. For patients that means faster healing times, longer-lasting results, decreased amputation rates and increased mobility – all leading to a better quality of life.

The types of wounds treated include:

  • diabetic foot ulcers
  • venous ulcers
  • pressure ulcers
  • surgical wounds
  • traumatic wounds

  • arterial ulcers
  • radiation wounds
  • compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • crush injuries

The Silver Cross Center for Advanced Wound Healing is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. To schedule an appointment for your patient, call 815-300-5997. No referral is required.

These physicians are independent practitioners on the Medical Staff and are not the agents or employees of Silver Cross Hospital. They treat patients based upon their independent medical judgment and they bill patients separately for their services.
