Who we are
Healogics is the nation’s leading provider of advanced wound care. Wound care treatment is very important and more common than most people realize. In fact, 1 in 4 families has a family member with a chronic wound. The impact on people and their loved ones is astounding, as a wound left untreated can lead to diminished quality of life and possible amputation of the affected limb. Approximately 30 percent of untreated chronic wounds result in amputation, and five-years post-amputation the mortality rate is approximately 75 percent.
Fortunately, there is hope for people who suffer from chronic wounds. Every team member within the Healogics network of nearly 600 Wound Care Centers® dedicates themselves every day to healing and caring for people with hard-to-heal wounds. The expertise of our Wound Care Centers’ specialty-trained wound care physicians allows Centers to treat a variety of chronic wounds.
We have been treating patients with chronic wounds for over 20 years, from over 600 hospital-based wound care centers across the country. Today, Healogics treats over 300,000 wound care patients a year and has healed nearly 4M wounds.
If you’re one of them, we can help.
Healogics has invested in advanced wound care treatment, technology and research. That means our patients heal faster than those who receive only generalized wound care.

The Healogics Wound Science Initiative is our commitment to use research to advance the science of wound care and continually improve treatment.

Advanced Modalities, Including Debridement, Improve Patient Outcomes
Healogics mission to advance wound healing includes ongoing research to improve healing rates for patients who entrust us with their care. Our proprietary data, along with analysis of respected medical literature, has revealed four factors that affect patient healing trajectories across all stages of healing.
Diabetic Neuropathy Increases Risks of Chronic Wounds
Neuropathy is a condition that damages nerves in the hands and feet. Over 34 million Americans are living with diabetes. More than half are also living with neuropathy. Diabetes is the number one cause of neuropathy.
Prevention and Proper Care of Diabetic Foot Ulcers
The statistics surrounding diabetic foot ulcers are alarming. Currently, over 2 million people in the U.S. have foot ulcers and up to 25% of all adults living with diabetes will experience a foot ulcer at some point. Non-healing diabetic foot ulcers account for 85% of diabetes-related amputations.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval is granted to healthcare companies that meet their disease-specific certification requirements. Currently, Healogics is the only wound management company that carries this designation. Reaccreditation is required every two years and this is the twelfth year that we have held a disease-specific certification. This accomplishment is just another example of delivering an Exceptional Experience for our patients.
