About The Advanced Wound Healing Clinic At Holton Community Hospital
Congratulations to our Advanced Wound Healing Clinic for achieving the RestorixHealth Clinical Distinction Award! Recipients of this award have demonstrated success by meeting or exceeding patient safety goals along with a 90% healing rate. Many thanks to the wound center staff for providing superior patient care!
Our award winning team provides care to people suffering from non-healing wounds in a way no other provider can–all in one location. The Advanced Wound Healing Clinic is a coordinated outpatient center that utilizes the latest techniques and procedures to provide the best chance of healing.
A wound that is not healing properly may be complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems, or previous radiation treatment. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is compromised. Other types of hard-to-heal wounds result from pressure, trauma or infection. Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.

Center Hours: Tuesdays – 8am to 4pm

What Can Patients Expect?
Your course of treatment depends on what type of wound you have. During your first visit, our staff will evaluate your wound and review your medical history. You may also need special tests that give us information about circulation and infection. This will help to determine what course of treatment you will need.
Once a treatment plan has been prescribed, you will visit the wound healing center weekly for specialized treatments and documentation of your healing progress. Keeping appointments and following directions are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome.
How You Can Assist With Your Healing:
Care for your wound at home as directed by the wound care team
Take medications as directed
Return for your follow-up appointments
Keep regular appointments with your primary care physician while you are receiving wound care treatment
Following your treatment regimen is the single most important factor in your healing.

Patient Champion -Raymond Boyce
Raymond Boyce had always had trouble with his feet, but nearly 2 months ago, he knew something was wrong. He was in so much pain that he could not even get his shoe on his foot. After visiting his doctor, he was referred to the Holton Community Hospital Advanced Wound Healing Clinic.
Once at the Wound Healing Clinic, Raymond was diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a disease that restricted blood flow to his lower legs and feet. He then underwent revascularization, a procedure to restore the blood flow, and after admitted, “For the first time, I didn’t have pain.” This is when he found hope and knew things would get better.
After the procedure, Raymond continued to attend weekly wound care appointments with the wound clinic’s staff, who also coordinated his wound care supplies and sent them to his house.
“I can’t say enough good things about the ladies at the clinic,” Raymond explains thankfully. “Everyone was very helpful. If I need them, I know they are always there.”
Now that Raymond is healed, he is getting back to the same things he has always done—but now without any pain. “If you have a wound, go to the Holton Community Hospital Advanced Wound Healing Clinic,” he adds.
