Memorial Wound Care Gets National Award

Wound heal rates, patient satisfaction earn outstanding marks

Based on its stellar patient satisfaction levels and healing outcomes, Memorial Wound Care was recently recognized with the Center of Distinction award by Healogics®, Memorial’s partner to provide highly specialized treatment for chronic wounds.

Memorial Wound Care achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction of 96 percent, and a wound healing rate of over 96 percent within 21 median days to heal. The team at Memorial Wound Care has obtained this prestigious award every year, for four consecutive years, since it opened in the last quarter of 2015.

Spence Fisher, Executive Vice President of Memorial Health stated, “Congratulations to our Wound Care staff on this national award and recognition! Year after year, these team members continue to demonstrate how they provide advanced wound care services, in combination with a high degree of compassion and dedication to our patients, many who have suffered for years before treatment here.”

The specially trained physicians and clinical staff at Memorial Wound Care heal chronic wounds, including diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, and other sores, which have not previously healed in a reasonable amount of time. Leading edge treatments at Memorial Wound Care include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. Memorial Wound Care also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.

According to Jon Dees, Program Director for Memorial Wound Care, “Our team is proud to accept this Center of Distinction award – but truly, the rewards come when we see the collaboration between our providers and nurses, together with our patients and their families. This leads to positive healing outcomes for our valued patients, and that means everything.”

Memorial Wound Care provides highly specialized treatments to assist patients with wounds and help them heal. Patients can be seen with or without a referral from a healthcare provider. Care is provided Monday through Friday, at 483 Coleman’s Crossing Blvd., in Marysville (937-578-4325).
