Ostomy/Wound Care

Mercy Iowa City provides wound and ostomy care, support and education to both outpatients and inpatients in need of such services. A certified Wound/Ostomy Nurse is available for consultation and trained nurses assist clients in prescribed treatment and education. Contact us at 319-339-3967.

Some reasons to call a wound/ostomy nurse to schedule a meeting:

  • Pre-operative marking and education
  • Post-operative and ongoing education for clients and their families
  • Skin irritation round the stoma
  • Bleeding
  • Leaking or short "wear time" for your pouch
  • Hernia/belt measuring


Advanced wound treatment is available on a outpatient basis by Mercy Wound and Vein Center.
