Due to our immunosupressed patients, we are unable to provide wound care at the cancer center. However, patients who need these services may contact JMC's Wound Care Center. We are also unable to provide care for patients who are infectious due to respiratory illnesses. Those patients will be referred to admitting for outpatient admission to the hospital.
