About Bingham Memorial Wound Care

The skin is the largest organ of the body and protects us from infections and radiation and helps regulate body temperature. Many types of wounds, however, can damage the skin including abrasions, lacerations, rupture injuries, punctures, and penetrating wounds. If they are deep or severe enough, medical attention will be required to prevent infection and loss of function, due to damage to underlying structures like bone, muscle, tendon, arteries, and nerves.

At Bingham Memorial Hospital, we are proud to have wound, ostomy and continence specialists. They specialize in providing high-quality and compassionate care to patients with wounds, ostomies, or continence disorders. This includes: non-healing wounds or bedsores, frequent urination, loss of bladder and/or bowel control, and problems with ostomy, such as skin irritation, leaking and other delicate concerns.
