Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare Announces New Partnership with Wound Care Advantage

Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare is pleased to announce its recent collaboration with Wound Care Advantage (WCA), a leading provider of comprehensive wound care services. This partnership represents a significant step forward in Casa Colina’s commitment to expanding wound care, hyperbaric medicine, and limb preservation services for the Southern California community.

Wound care plays a vital role in preventing infections and reducing amputation rates, which are of increasing concern in our society given the rising prevalence of conditions like diabetes and peripheral artery disease. According to a study published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, up to 80% of all amputations are preceded by chronic wounds like diabetic foot ulcers, indicating the urgent need for effective wound care management.

Reducing amputation rates is a primary goal for the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Casa Colina Hospital, which is home to its own Limb Preservation Program. By implementing evidence-based treatments, promoting early intervention, and providing ongoing support, Casa Colina aims to significantly decrease amputation rates and improve patient outcomes.

Casa Colina President and CEO Kelly M. Linden believes that the evolving collaboration between Casa Colina’s Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center and WCA is a crucial next step toward better addressing this pressing healthcare issue.

"At Casa Colina Hospital, our focus is providing comprehensive, compassionate, patient-centered care to our community,” says Linden. “For over 20 years, Casa Colina Hospital has offered specialized wound care and hyperbaric medicine services, improving quality of life for patients suffering from chronic wounds. Now, in collaboration with Wound Care Advantage, our dedicated team of wound care specialists will be equipped to provide an even higher standard of care."

Through this partnership, Casa Colina Hospital will benefit from the expertise and resources provided by WCA, ensuring the delivery of comprehensive wound care services tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center will leverage cutting-edge technologies, evidence-based practices, and a team of highly skilled specialists to offer a wide range of advanced wound care treatments, including debridement, negative pressure wound therapy, compression therapy, advanced dressings, personalized wound care plans, and surgical care when necessary.

Patients seeking specialized wound care, hyperbaric medicine, or limb preservation services can schedule appointments by calling 909/596-7733, ext. 3611.
