The staff of the Wound Care Program receiving the Center of Distinction award for Clinical Excellence in Wound Healing
Physicians, clinicians and leaders from Manatee Memorial Hospital gathered earlier this month to celebrate the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Treatment Program at Manatee Memorial Hospital’s recent Center of Distinction award. The Center received this award from Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services, for the Center’s outstanding achievements in clinical outcomes with an independently measured patient satisfaction score of 96% for 12 consecutive months. Patients at the Center had a greater than 96% wound healing rate and healed on average in 21 days.
“The Wound Care Program services make a tremendous difference in the lives of those who might otherwise experience amputations or other life-altering conditions," stated Tom McDougal, CEO of Manatee Memorial Hospital. "At Manatee Memorial Hospital we are committed to providing high-quality healthcare serving the specific needs of all patients."
The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Treatment Program at Manatee Memorial Hospital is a member of the Healogics®, network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® nationwide, and offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues and advanced biologic and biosynthetic dressings. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100% oxygen to help progress wound healing.
“We open our hearts and hands to those who are wounded, vulnerable and often in distress," said Dr. Stephanie Minter, Center Medical Director. "Our team takes pride in making a difference in each person's life by guiding them through the healing process. We make patient-centered care a priority, offering education, nutritional support and multimodal advanced wound care techniques and technology. By helping our patients understand the importance of self-care in the healing process, we create mutually beneficial success. I am beyond proud of our team and our patients for achieving this goal.”
