Bolivar Medical Center Opens Wound Care Center

January 31, 2011

Bolivar Medical Center has opened its new Wound Care Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient center located at 907 Sunflower Road, Suite 102, Cleveland, MS 38732.

It offers advanced technologies and proven clinical protocols in the treatment of chronic, non-healing wounds.

"We are excited to be adding this vital service to our continuum of care," says Wes Sigler, CEO of Bolivar Medical Center. "Not only will the Wound Care CenterĀ® complement the quality care already available at the hospital, but it also can serve as an additional treatment option for to the practices of our referring physicians-both of which will positively impact the health of our community."

Nationally, approximately seven million people suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds-a serious disorder that can lead to amputation of limbs and dramatically impaired quality of life.  Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins and immobility, non-healing wounds occur most frequently in the elderly and in people with diabetes-populations that are sharply rising as the nation ages and chronic diseases increase.

Bolivar Medical Center is working with Diversified Clinical Services, the nation's pioneer and leader in wound management with more than 250 centers nationwide, to develop the center. It will use Diversified Clinical Services innovative techniques that focus on not just treating the wound's symptoms, but healing it entirely by taking a disease management approach that eliminates the cause.
