Millions of people from all walks of life and all ages struggle with various types of non-healing skin wounds. These "problem" wounds fail to respond to standard treatments due to any number of often hidden, underlying issues. Our staff has been trained to identify and treat the diverse conditions that often upset the normal healing process. Working with the body's natural processes,
we can inspire the healing of even the most persistent wounds.
Our Mission: To have our customers and the professional community consider this wound
center to be the very best available in the Salt Lake region.
We plan to achieve this goal in three ways:
1. By imparting hope and improving quality of life through kind, compassionate and excellent healthcare.
2. By improving the body's healing through "evidence-based" medicine with an appropriate "team" of specialists.
3. By healing wounds, preventing amputations and educating to prevent recurrence.
"Your body will heal the wound; we merely help it do its job"
