WE BAND TOGETHER TO PROVIDE A WHOLISTIC APPROACH TO WOUND CARE SERVICES.

People are different.
So why assume all wounds are the same? Heights Health Care and Rehabilitation Centre’s wound care program looks at the whole patient to understand the root causes and true nature of the wound. We use this understanding to aggressively heal the wound. Our results speak for themselves.

For patients with hard to heal wounds, our comprehensive wound care program includes a broad range of leading edge therapies and treatments, including:

  • Surgical wound debridement
  • Chemical wound debridement
  • Wound VAC
  • Burn care
  • Ultraviolet light therapy
  • Tissue ultrasound
  • Electrical stimulation

Our staff includes a physician wound care specialist and trained wound care nurses who play an active role in assessing, diagnosing, and overseeing all wound care procedures and protocols. To prevent recurrence, our unique whole person approach to care also stresses wound prevention and self-management.

The program is designed to treat a wide range of problems, including:

  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Arterial and venous ulcers
  • Burns
  • Infections
  • Surgical wounds
  • Amputations

Other complex wounds resulting from conditions that compromise circulation, such as: diabetes, traumatic injury, surgical breakdown, congestive heart failure, vascular disease, incontinence, obesity, renal failure, lymphedema and others.
