Utilizing Evidence Based Medicine to Provide Advance Wound Care
The wound care clinic at Carlinville Area Hospital is designed to treat patients with chronic or slow healing wounds that have shown little or no signs of healing over the course of a month or two. The clinic offers to the community advanced treatments where only traditional methods have previously been available.
