Wound Care is a service offered by Gove County Medical Center. It is managed by a team of nurses and physical therapy staff under the direction of a physician. Services are provided on an outpatient and inpatient basis.
The team consists of three registered nurses, one who has years of nursing experience and specialized expertise in wound care.
