At St. Anthony's Wound Healing Center, our professional staff is highly trained in the specialized, comprehensive care of problem wounds, using the most up-to-date approaches in the science of wound care.

We’re here to help you heal! If you have a wound that hasn’t healed after 30 days of standard care, or another condition listed above, call 217-347-3565 today.

Advanced wound care methods provided by the hospital’s wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The Wound Healing Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100% oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.

Because every patient's wound is unique, you will have a thorough diagnostic exam to identify the type of wound you have and its underlying causes. A program specifically tailored to your needs will be started based on the most effective approach, which may include:

  • Vascular evaluation
  • Wound cleaning and debridement
  • Advanced biological tissues
  • Specialized dressings
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Infectious disease management
  • Physical therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a simple but effective treatment in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. The therapy quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream which helps increase your body's own natural wound-healing abilities.

The chamber has clear sides through which you can see your surroundings.
