CARROLLTON, Mo. – Carroll County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) offers outpatient wound care services five days a week that is innovative and advanced in a comfortable, convenient setting close to home. CCMH follows national guidelines established by clinical evidence-based practice when treating and managing wounds.

The Wound Care team has certified, wound-care providers and nurses. The clinic received the Tissue Analytics Award of Excellence in Digital Health, Mobile Wound Imaging and Documentation.

CCMH treats a variety of wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers, burns, trauma, surgical wounds with delayed healing and pressure ulcers.

“Through constant innovation, our patients get to experience the most advanced treatments and technology to ensure the best outcome possible,” said Dr. Andy Horine, CCMH Chief Medical Information Officer.

Wound clinic visits occur at least weekly for debridement along with but not limited to negative pressure wound therapy, maggot therapy, and placental allografts to assist with pain and wound healing. Many times, management of edema coincides with the care of lower extremity wounds.

Nearly 6 million Americans are affected by chronic wounds. More than 1 million people with diabetes will develop foot ulcers. About 20-30 percent of those patients will eventually undergo amputation.
“CCMH is proud to have wound healing rates that are consistently above the national benchmarks,” Dr. Horine said. “We have treated over 2000 wounds since January of 2024 and have healed over half of those wounds with over 400 of the remaining wounds improving well. Wound care is ever changing, and our wound care certified staff and team are here to help you along your wound care journey.”
