Southeastern Wound Healing Center Recognized with 2019 National Award for Clinical Excellence
Southeastern Wound Healing Center once again earned the Center of Distinction award by Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent, and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 92 percent within 28 median days to heal. There were 601 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award and 367 achieved the honor.
“I am so proud of the amazing doctors and nurses here at the center,” said SWHC Program Director Kathy Hansen. “Their patient-first attitude ensures great clinical outcomes which, in turn, means our patients can get back to their lives sooner.”
SWHC is an affiliate of Southeastern Health and a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® and provides access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds.
The center offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.
Leading edge treatments at the center include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.
