collaborate and align services to build on the current patient care initiatives for quality wound
care already in place,” stated Stuart Oertli, COO of WoundCentrics. “Our program will provide a
wound care specialist who will round in the hospital daily and deliver clinical expertise for the
wound service at ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist,” Oertli added.
“Our Hospital is licensed to provide care for critically ill patients who require daily physician and
staff attention for complex medical issues,” said Tom Harlan, CEO, ContinueCARE Hospital at
Palmetto Health Baptist. “Our specialty programs are specifically designed to meet the needs
of long-term, acute-care patients, including patients with chronic or challenging wounds.
Adding the WoundCentrics program and wound specialist providers expands our level of quality
care for wound care patients,” Harlan explained.

with complex medical conditions,” said Harlan. “We provide high quality care in a
