SIKESTON -- There is a new service at Missouri Delta Medical Center, and it's a specialized service aimed at treating those with non-healing wounds.

Mary Long, nurse practitioner and director of the Missouri Delta Wound and Hyperbaric Center spoke of the services offered at Thursday's monthly luncheon of the Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce. Before the Center recently opened, patients had to drive to Cape Girardeau or Poplar Bluff for the same care, she noted.

"I wanted to make you all aware of what we offer," she said. "We are an outpatient-based, chronic wound center."
