Wound Care

Wound Care services at Providence Tarzana Medical Center offer hope to patients who have chronic or non-healing wounds (wounds that have not healed after six weeks of treatment).

Patients may be referred through their physician or they may call the Providence Wound Care Center directly for an appointment. Our professionals work with the patient, their families or caregivers, and their physicians to coordinate care and develop an appropriate treatment program. Some of the chronic wounds treated by the Providence Tarzana Wound Center include:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Venous stasis ulcers
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Ulcers secondary to immunologic disorders, including vasculitis, rheumatologic disease, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Soft-tissue infections
  • Post-acute burns
  • Surgical wounds

A Comprehensive Approach to Wound Care

To encourage optimal healing, our team takes a multi-disciplinary approach. We understand every patient has special needs. As a result, we design individualized treatment plans that include patient education to help prevent wounds from reoccurring. Families, caregivers, and home health care nurses who provide care for patients are also included in the treatment process.
