The Comprehensive Wound Healing Center at Pardee Hospital is the recipient of the 2012 Robert Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence Award, in recognition of outstanding patient satisfaction and quality performance.
The award is presented annually by wound-care provider Healogics, and recognizes centers that meet or exceed exacting benchmarks. Pardee's Comprehensive Wound Healing Center (CWHC) is one in only 39 Healogics affiliates to receive the award out of more than 500, and the only wound care center in North Carolina to achieve this distinction. The award was received in the first year of the CWHC's eligibility.
"In an area where patients have multiple choices for wound care, we are the only wound center that has met and exceeded these high benchmarks for care," says Rachel Beal, CWHC Program Director. "This award affirms that our center is an outstanding wound care resource for Pardee Hospital and its community, and it recognizes the work of the entire CWHC team."

• Patient Satisfaction – Greater than or equal to 92 percent
• Healing Rate – Greater than or equal to 91 percent
• Outlier Rate (cases that lie outside established benchmarks) – Less than or equal to 19 percent
