W.O.C. Health Center
The Wound, Ostomy and Continence (W.O.C.) Health Center at Columbus Community Hospital offers effective treatments that can help people manage wound, ostomy or continence issues.
CCH’s W.O.C. Health Center uses evidence-based practices and advanced treatment options to help patients improve these conditions and more fully enjoy life.
CCH’s W.O.C. Health Center offers a comprehensive approach to treatment and its team of physicians and certified wound, ostomy and continence nurses (CWOCNs) design treatment plans to meet patients’ individual needs.
The W.O.C. Health Center benefits those with:
- Nonhealing wounds that linger for four to six weeks without improvement, including diabetic ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers (bed sores), or surgical wounds that fail to heal
- Problems managing an ostomy, whether it is inadequate wear time of the ostomy appliance (wafer/bag) or skin complications around or near the stoma
The professionals at the W.O.C. Health Center also keep patients’ primary care physicians informed and involved in patients’ treatment and recovery processes.
For more information about the W.O.C. Health Center, call 402-562-4620 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
