CentraCare Wound Center

About This Location

Coping with chronic, non-healing wounds can be both frustrating and time-consuming, but expert care is available to help improve healing and your quality of life. At the CentraCare Wound Center, a service of St. Cloud Hospital, we perform a high volume of wound procedures. Our physician-led team of experts individualize a plan of care to heal your wound.

Treatment Consultation

Upon referral to the CentraCare Wound Center, you will have a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound you have and its underlying causes. After this determination, a program specifically tailored to your needs will be started based on the most effective treatment options.

The program may include:

  • Debridement
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Vascular evaluation
  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
  • Compression Wrapping
  • Off-loading and Total Contact Casting

Our staff will set up regular appointments for your visits to the CentraCare Wound Center and give you all of the information you need to take care of your wound at home between visits. Keeping your appointments and following wound care instructions are essential to healing your wound.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

To help in your healing, you may be referred for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a simple but effective treatment in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber.

The chamber has clear sides through which you can see your surroundings, and is in a comfortable treatment room equipped with television and videos.

The therapy quickly and safely delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream, which helps increase your body’s own natural wound-healing abilities.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
