Wound Healing Center
There's no reason you need to live with an open sore. Reid Wound Healing Center, conveniently located on Chester Boulevard south of Reid's main campus, is equipped and staffed to address the unique circumstances associated with each wound. In fact, we've been able to treat many open sores that have resisted traditional treatment with a success rate of 80% healed in 12-16 weeks!
