Wound Care Company & Physician Group

Vohra Physicians, founded in 2000, is the largest wound care specialty group focused on the post-acute market. We use leading-edge technologies to enable our mission of bringing improved wound healing to patients across the U.S., and beyond.

Our history begins with a single physician, Dr. Ameet Vohra, who recognized that the prevalent wound care models were under-serving the 2% of US patients with chronic wounds. He developed a better approach, training physicians to be wound care specialists. Our physicians treat patients where they are, in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities, and Long Term Acute Care Hospitals.

Today, Vohra has 300 physician wound care specialists across 30 states treating thousands of patients daily. Supported by proprietary technologies and on-going specialist training, our model delivers proven better results, including a 21-day improvement in healing time, and an 88% reduction in wound-related hospitalizations.

As a physician-led group, we focus on delivering better outcomes by partnering with our facilities and building long-term sustainable relationships. Today, we support over 3,000 Skilled Nursing Facilities, visiting each weekly as expert wound consultants. In many cases, we also supply the patient’s wound care dressings through our integrated dressings program (DDP).We share our passion for wound care more broadly throughout the medical community –domestically and internationally –through our expert publications and technology platforms. For example, our mobile application includes an artificial-intelligence based wound care healing predictor. We created a dedicated online platform to deliver practical wound care education, which has been selected by many U.S. states as their preferred course.

Our committed physicians, long-standing partnerships, innovative technologies and relentless dedication to improving outcomes position Vohra to continue to serve more patients every day.

Thank you for the opportunity to become woundcare certified

The program was so appropriate for my skilled nursing background and makes me more confident to handle wounds in the absence of the wound care nurse. I will be recommending coworkers and peers to your program.

Vohra’s wound care program was very informative and valuable to me

I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in becoming wound care certified. The course has improved my knowledge tremendously regarding wounds and the proper interventions necessary to promote good healing.

The class is flexible

The study guide were very useful, and I learned about new dressings that were more economical and very effective. Nurses should take the course because it’s interesting and very helpful, the instruction is clear, and the administrators are very helpful.

It was a great educational experience

All of the modules that Vohra provides and the exams were not out of reach for me. The program was very user-friendly: it was easy to go from module to module without getting lost. And the knowledge that you gain . . . with medical directors designing this, I don’t know that you can do any better than that.

I highly recommend the course to anyone looking to increase their wound care knowledge!

I was so thankful

I was so happy that you had something that was just right for me! The course was very convenient, and I could do it on my own.  It covered a wide area of wound care and a whole lot more areas than I anticipated.

The lectures were enjoyable — I was interested, and I couldn’t wait to do the next module! I would recommend this course to anyone!

Highest standards of care

Having a full-time Vohra Wound Certified Nurse on staff, along with the knowledge brought by weekly visits from our Vohra physician, has allowed the Eastgate Nursing & Rehabilitation Center team to continuously provide the highest standards of care.

Stephanie Lessard, RN

Very helpful

The Vohra Wound Certification program was an interesting course and it was very helpful. I use the things that I learned in the course and I apply them when I’m out on the floor.

Dawanna White

I wanted to get wound certified

When the director of nursing asked me to be the wound care nurse here, I wanted to get wound certified. I chose to complete the online course from Vohra. I got a lot out of the program. The education provided helped me clarify certain wound types. It helped me learn how to clearly identify venous and arterial wounds and diabetic wounds. After doing the reading and looking at the examples, I understood it better. The program made it simple to learn.
