Wounds can be demanding, time-consuming and costly to manage. The outpatient wound clinic at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital is qualified to assist you by providing evidence based, cost effective and individualized management of acute and chronic wounds.
A candidate for the outpatient wound clinic is anyone who has a wound, acute or chronic, that has not shown signs of healing after two weeks, as well as patients with complicated surgical or traumatic wounds.
Our team of trained physicians/providers and certified wound care nurses are dedicated to improving the rate of healing and the patient’s quality of life.
Patients receive ongoing individualized instructions on caring for their wound or wounds. This may include nutrition, fluid intake, prescribed medication, offloading or reducing pressure to an area, dressing change procedure and measures to prevent infection.
Our staff members participate in ongoing education to maintain the most up-to-date knowledge on current wound care practices.
Referrals by local providers are welcome.
