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.

Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine

Treatment for Chronic Wounds in Central Minnesota

Coping with chronic, non-healing wounds can be both frustrating and time-consuming, but help is available.

CentraCare Wound Centers offer chronic wound care management in an outpatient setting. The centers use a multi-disciplinary, evidence-based approach to treat those suffering from slow-to-heal or non-healing wounds.

CentraCare Wound Centers serve patients with:

  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Wounds still present after recent revascularization procedures
  • Wound or tissue damage as a result of radiation therapy in the past
  • Bone infections
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Wounds that haven't healed within 30 days

CentraCare Wound Centers treat each patient individually. Treatment options include:

  • Vascular evaluation
  • Wound debridement
  • Cellular- or tissue-based product application
  • Compression therapy
  • Pressure off-loading
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO)

To help in your healing, those who meet criteria 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. It 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.

As A New Patient

Upon referral, you will have an examination to identify the type of wound you have and its underlying causes. Once completed, a program specifically tailored to your needs will be started based on the most effective treatment options.
