CARLISLE, PA — Carlisle Regional Medical Center is happy to announce the opening of a NEW Advanced Wound Healing Center in Shippensburg. This outpatient service is located at the Progress Professional Center at 97 Progress Boulevard. Like our Carlisle location, the new Center in Shippensburg features the latest in wound care technology. A state-of-the-art facility, the Center provides the most advanced therapies and the latest clinical modalities to treat problem wounds.

The causes of hard-to-heal wounds are as unique as the people who suffer them. The brand NEW Advanced Wound Healing Center of Shippensburg offers sophisticated therapies and procedures that speed healing and give patients a chance to enjoy life again.

“Our approach is to look at each individual and the conditions that affect their healing. We implement an aggressive, customized treatment plan to heal the wound. In addition, we look at underlying issues that may be causing wounds and address them to prevent future wound problems." — Anthony J. Guarracino, DO, Physician with the Advanced Wound Healing Center of Shippensburg

Multiple wound-healing options are available at the Center, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which uses pure oxygen to help the body heal.

“What is important about our therapies is that they are tried and true,” explains Anthony J. Guarracino, DO, Physician with the Advanced Wound Healing Center of Shippensburg. “Our success rate is 90% of wounds are healed in 14 weeks or less.”

Patients are referred by their primary care physician and the program operates by appointment. A wound care physician will coordinate an overall care plan for each patient, working in partnership with the patient’s referring physician.

“We are excited to be able to provide this much needed service in Shippensburg. Our team of physicians, HBOT technicians, and nurses are trained to provide comprehensive treatment and care,” said Dr. Guarracino.
