Wound Treatment Center
Mather's two community-based centers in Port Jefferson and Melville provide comprehensive treatment for wounds that do not respond to normal medical care within 30 days. Our team of qualified healthcare professionals provides patients with a complete case management program, which may include a variety of therapies, debridement, education and nutritional management.
An estimated 5 million Americans suffer from chronic or non-healing wounds. At the Wound Treatment Center, case management program begins at assessment, flows through extended treatment and includes support with insurance coverage for care and products. We follow an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address total patient health.
Since 1991, the Wound Treatment Center at Mather Hospital has been providing comprehensive treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, allowing patients to enjoy a better quality of life. The Center has consistently high patient satisfaction rates and exceptional healing results and outstanding clinical outcomes.
The Wound Treatment Center, with locations in Port Jefferson and Melville, draws on the expertise of 14 physicians with a variety of specialists, including podiatry, vascular surgery and internal medicine. They are supported by a wound care certified clinical coordinator, lead nurse, inpatient coordinator, nurse care managers, nursing assistants and support staff.
Most patients come to the Wound Treatment Center through a referral from a primary care physician, but you may also contact the Wound Treatment Center directly. Your wound and general health will be evaluated at your initial appointment and a treatment program based on your special needs will be developed. This program may include regular visits to the Wound Treatment Center to provide treatment, evaluate progress, and make any changes that might be needed. You (or your caregiver) will be given detailed instructions on home care, dressing (bandage) changes, and protecting the wound from further injury.
