The wound care and hyperbaric medicine program at Wellington Regional Medical Center is one of only 29 of the 413 eligible centers to recently be awarded the prestigious President’s Circle award in recognition for outstanding performance in the areas of patient satisfaction and wound care. The hospital was awarded the honor by Healogics.
To earn the distinction, WRMC’s Wound Care Center achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal, for a minimum of two consecutive years.
“We have known for some time that the Wellington Regional’s elite wound care program ranks among the best in the nation,” said Dr. Arthur Hansen, co-medical director of wound care and hyperbaric medicine at WRMC. “This designation is an indication of the medical team’s commitment to providing the best possible wound care services in the country.”
Co-Medical Director Dr. Kathleen Minnick agreed.
“The wound care and hyperbaric medicine program at Wellington Regional Medical Center continues to provide cutting-edge treatment therapies for our patients,” she said. “It is an honor for our team to be nationally recognized by Healogics for our quality, and patients who choose our program for their care can be confident that they have access to the most current treatment protocols and therapies.”
The award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former chief medical officer for Healogics.
