It is estimated that over 6.5 million Americans suffer from chronic or hard to heal wounds. Hospital based
Wound Care Centers are staffed with specially trained physicians and nurses who work in conjunction
with the patient's primary care physician. Together they work to diagnosis and treat a variety of chronic,
or non-healing, wounds. The wounds treated often include arterial ulcers, diabetic and neuropathic ulcers,
lower extremity edema (swelling of the feet and/or ankles), pressure injuries or ulcers, problem surgical
wounds, animal and insect bites, trauma wounds and venous stasis ulcers.

Shared Health Services, in conjunction with its partner hospitals, offers evidence based wound care which
is proven to reduce complications and amputations related to these chronic, non-healing wounds. During
a typical visit to a Wound Care Center a patient will undergo a complete assessment, wound measurement
and photographs, debridement to aid in the removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue by surgical or
other means to improve the healing potential of the remaining healthy tissue, infectious disease
management, laboratory and vascular evaluation, advanced wound dressings, compression dressings,
prosthetic and pressure relief assistance, negative pressure wound therapy and/or hyperbaric oxygen
therapy.

In accepting his new position Mr. Wilcox stated, In a rapidly changing world of wound care and
hyperbaric medicine, one can't be satisfied with the status quo. One must continually improve and stay
abreast of the latest evidence to provide a comprehensive evidence-based practice."
