Memorial Wound Care Recognized with Award

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 95 percent, and a wound healing rate of 94 percent within 21 median days to heal. The team at Memorial Wound Care has obtained this prestigious award every year, for five consecutive years, since it opened in the last quarter of 2015.

Spence Fisher, Executive Vice President of Memorial Health states, “Our team of specialized doctors, nurses, and technicians are dedicated to healing wounds and providing support, to give our patients back their quality of life. It is fitting to recognize their high-level care with this national award and recognition. Congratulations to the entire team!”

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.

Dr. Colleen Fink, Medical Director of Memorial Wound Care shares, “This is the fifth consecutive year our center has received this award. It is gratifying to lead such an excellent care team that strives for these continued superior patient satisfaction levels and healing outcomes. Caring for the wounds of our patients is our first priority, and it shows.”
