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.
Gift Yourself Better Health: Keep Appointments This Holiday Season
The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve are the busiest and often most stressful time of the entire year. It is tempting to put off scheduling a new appointment or to miss a planned doctor’s visit due to family activities or winter weather. This can be doubly damaging because our immune system can be weakened by stress, compromising our ability to heal, and any delay in treatment can increase the amount of time it takes to recover.
Healing Rates Improve When Patients Keep Scheduled Appointments
Written by Healogics Chief Medical Officer, Dr. William Ennis.
As the leader in wound care, Healogics is committed to sharing the results of our research. We recently published a paper in a peer-reviewed medical journal titled, “Reducing Unwarranted Clinical Variability through Patient Visit Frequency.” In summary, we found that the number one variable that has the most impact on Comprehensive Healing Rate is visit frequency.
Healthy, Diabetic-Friendly Holiday Recipes Everyone Can Enjoy
Holiday meals are a time-honored tradition for most families, especially during Thanksgiving. However, finding diabetic-friendly recipes can seem like a challenge. While it is important for everyone to watch portion sizes and limit refined carbohydrates, if you or someone you love is living with diabetes, it is essential.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval is granted to healthcare companies that meet their disease-specific certification requirements.

Reaccreditation is required every two years and this is the twelfth year that we have held a disease-specific certification. This accomplishment is just another example of delivering an Exceptional Experience for our patients.
