Wound Center

Central Maine Medical Center's Comprehensive Wound Center Provides Support and Education


Patients with wounds, ostomies, stomas, urinary and fecal incontinence disorders can receive help with any physical, emotional and social issues or needs they may have at CMMC's Comprehensive Wound Center.

CMMC has specially trained nurses -- Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses (WOCN) -- to help patients.

Our nurses help with practical matters such as implementing cost-effective treatment plans to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital stays. They also provide valuable education to all members of the patient care team and to a patient's family. WOC nurses work closely with the other members of a patient's healthcare team; care is individualized and comprehensive.

Prevention is a key part of the WOC nurses' mission, as is managing health conditions in order to attain optimal quality of life. CMMC's Comprehensive Wound Center is a place of compassion, support and practical help.
