WAUKESHA, Wis., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeCare Hospitals of Wisconsin is pleased to announce the opening of its new Center for Advanced Wound Healing. The hospital will hold an open house for physicians, case managers and anyone interested in touring the facility on Wednesday, February 13, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
