In December 2011, Saint George Hospital University Medical Center opened its doors to a new Wound Clinic and Training Center making it one of a few specialized wound facilities in the entire region. This clinic is located at Saint George Hospital University Medical Center in the current Community Health Center, also known as the Out-Patient Department.
This wound clinic is operated and managed primarily by our expert Attending Physicians while the day-to-day functions are performed by our certified wound care nurses who have endured rigorous hands-on international training.
Our wound clinic personnel are dedicated to treating and managing acute and chronic hard-to-heal wounds using the most up-to-date techniques while working closely with all physicians who refer their patients to the clinic for care.
Our goal is to ensure the underlying factors and health problems contributing to the delay of wound healing are managed and addressed in a multidisciplinary approach, allowing the patient to lead a better way of life.
