Sierra View Medical Center now has a new program director for the Wound Healing Center. Pamela Nagra joined the health care organization in the second half of 2019. Patients looking for help in treating wounds may benefit from the specialized wound care services offered at the facility. The Wound Healing Center is a partnership between Sierra View Medical Center and Healogics. The site offers patients in Porterville and the South Valley a variety of services including wound consultation, non-invasive vascular studies, specialty wound dressing, compression therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy to name a few.

As program director, Nagra will act as a coordinator for the department’s projects as well as supervise and organize activities and ensure that project goals align with the company's mission and vision. “Community outreach and education is a key focus,” Nagra says, “it helps us reach new patients and spread the word about our services to the community.” Nagra is a Certified Hyperbaric Technologist, a Registered Respiratory Therapist and holds a Bachelor’s in Health Sciences with a concentration in Management from Trident University International.
