Stop waiting. Start healing.
Two of life’s greatest pleasures are being healthy and leading an active life. So, when you have chronic wound, ostomy or continence issues limiting what you can do, it can be hard to enjoy yourself. Caregivers at the Wound, Ostomy and Continence (W.O.C.) Health Center at Columbus Community Hospital understand these concerns and offer effective treatments to help with such conditions.
“We see a wide range of patients in our center,” said Jennifer Fjell, director of the W.O.C. Health Center. “Most of our patients are adults with chronic non-healing wounds related to pressure, neuropathy, diabetes and disease.”
The W.O.C. Health Center offers a comprehensive approach to treatment for each patient, with an expert team of physicians and certified wound, ostomy and continence nurses. Evidence-based practices with the most advanced treatment options help our patients improve these conditions so they can feel better and return to enjoying life.
“Wound care is our specialty,” said Dr. Jeremy Albin, one of the doctors at the clinic. “We have the expertise and experience to make all the difference. Our doctors and nurses are certified specialists in the field, and their knowledge helps create the best individualized care for our patients.”
The W.O.C. Health Center has become a medical hub for wound care in the Columbus area.
“Wound and ostomy care can be very complex and requires close attention,” said Fjell. “Many patients previously had to travel to receive the advanced wound and ostomy care they can now receive in their community. We are a close-to-home resource for these individuals. We are here for our patients, and our goal is patient satisfaction and care.”
The professionals at the W.O.C. Health Center also keep patients’ primary care physicians informed and involved in their treatment and recovery processes.
