Wound Care

Specialized wound care is offered to patients from throughout Hawaii Island by board-certified physicians. Patients are evaluated to determine any under­lying condition such as diabetes, malnutrition or poor circulation, that might inhibit the natural healing process. Our multidisciplinary team develops individualized treatment plans for each patient. These plans maximize healing using proven methods and advanced technologies, including cellular tissue products, compression therapy for edema management, negative pressure wound therapy for large or draining wounds, non-invasive vascular testing, and access to hyperbaric oxygen therapy at The Queen’s Medical Center’s Punchbowl campus for wounds that are especially difficult to heal.

We also educate patients, families and caregivers on how to provide wound care at home, as well as improve their overall health with proper nutrition and exercise.

Contact your primary care provider for a referral to QNHCH’s Wound Care Services, or contact QNHCH Wound Care Services at 881-4745 to learn more.
