The award is presented by Healogics, Inc., the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services. The Comprehensive Wound Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction over 92 percent, a minimum 91 percent wound healing rate within 30 median days to heal and other quality outcomes. The Wound Center was one of only 172 centers who achieved this high honor. The center also received the Robert A. Warriner Center of Excellence Award, recognizing centers that have received the Center of Distinction Award for three consecutive years (2012, 2013 and 2014).
This award is a great honor and is attributed to the outstanding clinical care that patients receive. The Physicians and Nurses here at the Wound Center are extremely compassionate and very knowledge. I frequently receive positive feedback from patients that otherwise might have never healed or in some cases, lost a limb. It is very rewarding to work with such a great group of people stated Anne Sweeney, Program Director, Comprehensive Wound Center at Pardee.
