JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Chronic wounds affect millions of people around the world. Contributing to the epidemic is the rise of diabetes, obesity and an aging population. The most common chronic wounds in the U.K. – pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and venous leg ulcers - cost an estimated £2.3-3.1 billion per year (made up of nursing time, hospital resources, dressings, and other materials). Without proper care, patients with chronic wounds may suffer for months or even years.
The recent acquisition of Wound Healing Centres, Ltd by Healogics, Ltd seeks to bring additional resources and expand specialised wound care throughout England. Healogics brings more than 15 years of experience managing over 550 Wound Care Centers® in the United States.
The broad range of services offered by the wound clinic in Eastbourne dovetail Healogics state-of-the-art Wound Care Centers in the US. Both are committed to advancing wound healing by following clear, evidence-based pathways of care and providing expert wound management for patients with chronic wounds to the lower limb. This type of specialised care will reduce expenditures, improve healing outcomes, and speed healing times for patients with hard to heal wounds.
Michael Sobanja, Director of Policy, NHS Alliance said, “Healogics has an excellent track record in Wound Care, and their involvement in the UK should benefit patients and drive up standards more generally.”
Healogics sees this acquisition as being a significant milestone to introduce its pioneering wound management protocols to the UK, and contribute to the wound care expertise that exists now and in the future.
Jeff Nelson, Chief Executive Officer and President, Healogics commented, “The chronic wound epidemic reaches all corners of the world, and patients desperately need access to specialised care. Healogics is happy to join with Wound Healing Centres, Ltd, reinforcing our mission to reach wounded patients, wherever they may be, and provide them with the care they need.”
Sylvie Hampton, Co-founder and Director of Wound Healing Centres Ltd said, “This is an exciting time for Wound Healing Centres Ltd. We are looking forward to benefitting from the support and unrivalled experience that Healogics brings so that our patients continue to receive the very best care available.”
