For Brian Hanner of New Philadelphia, the comprehensive Wound Healing Center in Union Hospital helped him get back into his exercise routine.
During a routine run in New Philadelphia's Tuscora Park, Brian's shin collided with a wooden partition resulting in a deep gash. He didn't think much of it, but two weeks later, it still hadn’t healed. Brian knew of the Wound Healing Center, so he called and was able to make a same-day appointment without a doctor's referral.
Brian's job often has unpredictable hours but he said scheduling – or rescheduling – an appointment was never a problem. After six visits, Brian's wound was healed and he was able to get back on his running schedule.
"I had a wonderful hospital experience," he said. "They were very accommodating with my ever-changing schedule. And the support and follow-up was great."
