New program director joins team at Sierra View Medical Center’s Wound Healing Center

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 provides 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 and supervise and organize activities to ensure that project goals align with Sierra View’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.

Growing up in Canada, Nagra has always felt the call to help others and feels California is a place where she can make a difference. Through her leadership role at Sierra View Medical Center, Nagra hopes to help strengthen the organization through an effective, ethical and inspired approach to leading the Wound Healing Center team. She wants the community to know about the state-of-the-art therapies offered at the Wound Healing Center, such as skin grafts and treatment options for diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, burns and other chronic non-healing wounds. Nagra works closely with Russell Dounies, MD, the overseeing physician at the site.
