Award acknowledges center as nationwide leader in wound healing patient outcomes
Memorial Hospital’s Wound Center earned the 2020 Going the Distance award, issued by RestorixHealth, an organization that specializes in the development and management of comprehensive wound healing and Amputation Prevention Center® facilities. Results are calculated by comparing the center’s patient outcomes against RestorixHealth nationwide benchmarks.
Healthcare professionals have been tasked with maintaining quality through patient outcomes despite a daunting global pandemic. The Going the Distance award acknowledges those outpatient wound healing centers who have achieved or exceeded nationwide patient outcome standards within a set period of time during 2020.
Memorial’s team of experienced wound care specialists assess the patient’s symptoms to determine the underlying cause of their non-healing wound and then customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing. “During these unprecedented times I welcome the opportunity to recognize our center staff and the talent they bring to the wound healing clinic” said Memorial Hospital CEO, Brett Bollmann. “Their dedication is highly valued and a commitment to ensuring the best possible care for our patients and community”.
At Memorial’s Wound Center, the approach to wound care is comprehensive, coordinating traditional and advanced therapies that aid and accelerate the healing process. For patients, that means faster healing times, longer-lasting results, decreased amputation rates and increased mobility. Wound conditions treated include but not limited to: diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, arterial ulcers, radiation wounds, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and crush injuries. Memorial Hospital’s Wound Center is open on Tuesday mornings in Memorial Hospital’s Specialty Clinic.
