WoundCentrics has recently assumed clinical responsibility for the outpatient wound care and hyperbarics clinic at Warm Springs Specialty Hospital in Luling, Texas.

Jana Kuykendoll, CEO of Warm Springs – Luling remarked, “the long-standing partnership between our facility and WoundCentrics in servicing the inpatient population for wound care has been a great success. When it came time to make a change in providers servicing the outpatient clinic, we looked at two things: 1) the experience we have had with WoundCentrics and 2) the demonstrated expertise of WoundCentrics in outpatient wound care and hyperbarics. These two factors made the decision to expand our partnership with WoundCentricsto include outpatient services an easy one and we are confident based on the early results that it was the right decision.”

WoundCentrics and Guadalupe Regional Medical Center (GRMC) are pleased to announce a partnership in operating an outpatient wound care and hyperbarics clinic for patients in Seguin, TX and surrounding counties.

GRMC is licensed for 125 beds and is city/county, non-profit hospital that does not rely upon tax dollars - a unique facility in the State of Texas. The hospital has operated a wound center for many years but recently reached out to WoundCentrics seeking our management expertise and unique approach to clinic operations to improve outcomes for patients. 

After coming to agreement that this partnership would be mutually beneficial, Dr. Marcus Gitterle, CEO of WoundCentrics, led an effort to educate the local medical community regarding our approach and his efforts solidified much-needed support for the program - a critical component to success.

The Medical Director for the clinic is Dr. Michael Chaney. Dr. Chaney is a Plastic Surgeon as well as a certified Hyperbaricist and he has very quickly led a positive transition of staff and culture in the clinic that is appreciated by clinical and administrative personnel at GRMC. 

In addition to the outpatient services, clinic-affiliated providers are now rounding on wound patients in the GRMC inpatient population which helps create a more cohesive and coordinated approach to wound care at the facility.

The WoundCentrics model of true partnership and shared goals with facilities and our extension into the greater continuum of wound care has fostered greater confidence in the clinic as well as improved volumes in a very short time.

Utilizing a multi-disciplinary, team approach the Laredo Specialty wound care clinic will deliver advanced wound care utilizing the latest modalities and, where indicated, hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a comprehensive strategy to address complex patient wounds. These strategies are tailored to the specific need of the patient in a plan of care that supports the healing process and is designed to improve overall health of the patient. Dr. Gilberto Garza-Lozano, a trained hyperbaricist and Internal Medicine specialist with extensive ties to the Laredo community, serves as Medical Director for the clinic. 

Complications from diabetes is a major issue in South Texas. Laredo Specialty recognized the need for a wound care clinic dedicated to addressing wound issues related to diabetes as well as soft tissue or surgical infection, radiation damage and other causes. WoundCentrics was chosen to partner with Laredo Specialty due to our commitment to treating the whole patient with clinical best practices as well as our involvement and engagement with the entire health care continuum in the community. The whole goal is to ensure patients with wounds in the Laredo community receive the very best of care.

This differentiated approach to the full-spectrum treatment of wound patients, performed in conjunction with our sister company (Wound Care Specialists of America), has proven extremely effective at our 5 clinics in the San Antonio metro area. It is why we are being approached to replicate this model in other communities throughout the country.
