Advanced Wound Care Center

Hard-to-heal wounds demand advanced care - that's why there's the Advanced Wound Center (AWC) at Iberia Medical Center.  The AWC specializes in the treatment of patients with chronic, non-healing cutaneous wounds.  By using cutting-edge treatments, which may include hyperbaric oxygen therapy and sophisticated case management, we help patients with chronic wounds heal faster - and when wounds heal faster, lives improve.

After a complete evaluation and medical history assessment is performed, typical treatment protocols may include:

  • Topical Dressings
  • Infection Control
  • Compression Therapy
  • Debridement of the Wound
  • Vascular Studies
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Orthotics
  • Patient Education


Cardiac Rehab

The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation (Cardiac Rehab) department, conveniently located on the North Campus, offers a program designed to meet the needs of patients with a variety of cardiovascular histories, including heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, stable angina and coronary artery disease.  

In addition, the program addresses the needs of patients with lung diseases such as COPD, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma and chronic lung disease.

The program provides medically supervised and monitored exercise therapy, nutritional counseling, comprehensive patient education, psychological support and health enhancement.

The Cardiac Rehab department at Iberia Medical Center is proud of its certification by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). AACVPR Program Certification is recognition of a provider’s commitment to improving the quality of life of patients by enhancing our standards of care.

 

Hepatology Clinic

More than 130 million people in the world live with chronic Hepatitis C, a blood-borne virus that causes inflammation of the liver and, left untreated, can lead to cirrhosis, liver cancer – even death.  In response to this community need, Iberia Medical Center has opened the Hepatology Clinic on the North Campus, overseen by local Gastroenterologist Dr. Son Nguyen.   

The CDC estimates 60,000 people in Louisiana are infected with chronic Hep C.  It can be contracted from blood transfusions received years ago, from ill-performed tattoos, the sharing of needles and sexual transmission.  People born between 1945 and 1965 are at higher risks and can go without symptoms for decades.  Standard blood tests do not detect the disease.  A specific screening for Help C is required.  The good news is that Hep C can be cured with medication.  

  

Hyperbaric Therapy

Conveniently located inside the Advanced Wound Center at the North Campus, hyperbaric oxygen therapy services provide patients with a treatment option for wounds that won’t heal.   Treatment takes place inside a chamber that is pressurized and delivers pure oxygen to the wound.

Some conditions that may be treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy:

  • Infections
  • Radiation injuries
  • Burns
  • Crush injuries
  • Diabetes-related wounds
  • Certain skin grafts and flaps

The Advanced Wound Center at Iberia Medical Center has been recognized as a Center of Distinction by Healogics, Inc, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

This designation means that the Center achieved outstanding patient outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including stellar patient satisfaction and healing rates. 

The Advanced Wound Center at Iberia Medical is one of only 423 centers to achieve this nationwide.
