Wound Healing Center Opens at Hamilton Memorial Hospital

Hamilton County (McLeansboro) – Hamilton Memorial Hospital announced today the opening
of their Wound Healing Center, an outpatient facility offering a comprehensive approach for
patients with non-healing wounds.

The center’s patients are examined by surgeon, Dr. Rodney Miller who is trained in wound care
and evaluated for all possible related conditions, such as diabetes, that could interfere with
proper healing. The care team follows evidence-based clinical pathways to determine why
wounds are not healing and then develops individual treatment plans, utilizing the most
effective technologies available to provide maximum healing and relief.

“Between five and seven million Americans experience at least one form of a non-healing
wound annually and the incidence of these wounds is increasing by approximately 10 percent
each year,” said, Dr. Rodney Miller. “Many of these individuals suffer from wounds that refuse
to heal despite conventional treatment. These wounds seldom involve a simple answer.”
The Wound Healing Center at Hamilton Memorial Hospital will provide a comprehensive
approach to treating patients with non-healing wounds. The team features nurses and
technicians with advanced training in wound care.

The Wound Healing Center will be open on Wednesday afternoons beginning June 17, 2020.
