NEW CASTLE, PA.
Sharon Regional Health System is now offering wound-care services at its Neshannock Diagnostic and Specialty Center, 2915 Wilmington Road. The services are an extension of Sharon Regional’s Advanced Wound Recovery Center in Hermitage.
Wound center staff will see patients in Neshannock to diagnose and treat wounds and medical conditions such as arterial ulcers, burns, diabetic and neuropathic ulcers, lower-extremity edema, pressure ulcers, problem surgical wounds, spider and insect bites, trauma wounds and other conditions.
Through its Hermitage location, the center also offers hyperbaric medicine, a noninvasive procedure often used to treat chronic nonhealing wounds that uses a pressurized chamber containing 100 percent oxygen that enhances the wound-healing process.

Get kids vaccinated
As children get ready to go back to school, Akron Children’s Hospital is reminding parents about getting their children vaccinated.
Most schools require children to be current on vaccinations before enrolling to protect the health of all students. Today’s childhood vaccines protect against serious and potentially life-threatening diseases.
There is a recommended immunization calendar at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/index.html.
