Chief Executive Officer
In 1998, Dr. Keith M. Warner, was the visionary who saw a critical need for a wound care management program in Northeast Ohio and founded Northeast Surgical Wound Care Services. Dr. Warner's interest in wound healing developed early in his practice as he was confronted with the complex needs of wounded patients with bowel leakage and contamination of wounds. He found this scenario most often in long-term care facilities and in patients with chronic wounds. He became an early adopter of the principles of moist healing, and of modifying the wound environment of chronic wounds to effect healing.
