Care First Wound Healing Center is a community-based, for-profit, and outpatient wound care clinic that provides a multidisciplinary approach to wound management for those who live with chronic wounds in Los Angeles County. Care First aligns with the Triple Aim goals of improved patient experience, improved population health, and reduced healthcare costs. Care First Wound Healing Center will serve to provide for those populations that will benefit from timely and appropriate wound care, specifically elderly patients and those with diabetic ulcers. Wound care that is evidence-based, cost-effective, safe, and painless is a priority and one of the hallmarks of Care First is access. The provision of transportation and visiting Nurse Practitioners for homebound patients will improve access to medical care for chronic wounds. A financial analysis demonstrates that Care First Wound Healing Center is a viable healthcare business that will provide quality patient outcomes for the community it serves.
