Why We Care
August 02, 2017- Skilled Wound Care
Our mission: touch lives, heal wounds, and reach the underserved.
What drives a Skilled Wound Care physician? A passion for helping others in a real, lasting way, and a deep desire to make the medical profession more collaborative, more team-oriented, and more inclusive.
Our physicians are a diverse group: from newer practitioners drawn to an undeserved specialty where they can make a real and lasting impact, to mid-career doctors looking for a job that helps them balance work and family, to recently-retired physicians who enjoy the rewards of treating patients without the headache of complicated systems.
But one thing ties them all together: everyone in the Skilled Wound Care family is motivated by a deep conviction that healing wounds matters, and that every life we touch is important. Our team is growing rapidly across the country, and we are always looking for new providers to help us reach more patients.

Skilled Wound Care is a mobile surgical practice committed to transforming the chronic wound care model in nursing facilities. Wound care experts make weekly bedside visits to patients in long-term care facilities, avoiding transfers to hospitals or clinics. Our expert physicians give patients the most up-to-date and effective wound treatments, and educate facility staff on how to help patients continue to heal quickly and effectively between visits. This model of collaborative care allows SWC’s physicians to improve patients’ lives and health outcomes, to empower nursing staff, and to raise public awareness. Skilled Wound Care, along with its nurse and nursing home partners, is working every day to positively transform traditional nursing home wound care.
