Who we are
Healogics is the nation’s leading provider of advanced wound care. Wound care treatment is very important and more common than most people realize. In fact, 1 in 4 families has a family member with a chronic wound. The impact on people and their loved ones is astounding, as a wound left untreated can lead to diminished quality of life and possible amputation of the affected limb. Approximately 30 percent of untreated chronic wounds result in amputation, and five-years post-amputation the mortality rate is approximately 75 percent.
Fortunately, there is hope for people who suffer from chronic wounds. Every team member within the Healogics network of nearly 600 Wound Care Centers® dedicates themselves every day to healing and caring for people with hard-to-heal wounds. The expertise of our Wound Care Centers’ specialty-trained wound care physicians allows Centers to treat a variety of chronic wounds.
We have been treating patients with chronic wounds for over 20 years, from over 600 hospital-based wound care centers across the country. Today, Healogics treats over 300,000 wound care patients a year and has healed nearly 4M wounds.
If you’re one of them, we can help.
Healogics has invested in advanced wound care treatment, technology and research. That means our patients heal faster than those who receive only generalized wound care.
Wound Science Initiative
The Healogics Wound Science Initiative is our commitment to use research to advance the science of wound care and continually improve treatment. Through our database of more than five million wounds and our partnerships with academic and scientific leaders, Healogics has become the foremost expert in evidence-based wound care, resulting in better wound care outcomes for our patients and partners.
Q&A about PAD with Carolyn Shinn, RN, BSN, CWS, Vice President, Clinical and Quality Process Excellence
What are the most significant warning signs for PAD?
The most common symptom is pain in the lower legs and feet, especially when walking or climbing stairs. But many people living with PAD—up to 40%—experience no symptoms until they develop a wound or sore on their foot or leg. They may not have felt the wound as it worsened due to neuropathy or nerve damage related to their PAD.
Learn the Symptoms and Risk Factors for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
Don’t dismiss minor leg pain as a part of growing older. You might be among the approximately 10 million Americans living with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). PAD may lead to a non-healing wound, such as an arterial or venous ulcer, or even a diabetic foot ulcer.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) to Help Reduce Amputations
We’re raising awareness of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) throughout September and supporting the American Heart Association’s goal to reduce amputations by 20% by 2030 through increased PAD Awareness, diagnosis and treatment.
