Covenant HealthCare, based in Saginaw, Mich, announces it has partnered with Wound Care Advantage to provide full-service management and consulting services as it expands its outpatient wound care and hyperbaric medicine program.

The Covenant Wound Healing Center serves patients from 20 counties across central and northeast Michigan, and there’s a growing need for specialized wound care in the region due to increased diabetes rates, according to a media release from Wound Care Advantage.

“Diabetes rates are on the rise, especially in our region of the country, and there’s an increased need for outpatient wound care and hyperbaric services,” says Jacqueline Tinnin, director of the Covenant Wound Healing Center, in the release.

“We are excited to partner with WCA to meet this need and ensure that our clinicians are well-equipped to provide patients in our region with the extraordinary care they deserve.”

Mike Comer, CEO of Wound Care Advantage, comments that, “Covenant HealthCare is one of the most preferred health care providers in central and northeast Michigan, and we’re excited to help bring its wound care program to the next level. Our goal is to maximize operational efficiencies while continuing to honor our mutual commitment to quality care and patient satisfaction.”
