Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care and Hyperbaric Treatment Program staff, physicians and hospital leaders gathered together to celebrate the program’s receipt of the eighth consecutive Center of Distinction Award and the seventh consecutive Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence Award from the Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of wound care services. Manatee Memorial Hospital’s program has 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.

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Treatment Program at Manatee Memorial Hospital offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Advanced treatments include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, biological and biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies.   

“Our wound program services have made an incredible difference in the lives of patients who might otherwise experience amputations or other life-altering conditions," said Kevin DiLallo, CEO of Manatee Memorial Hospital. "We are very proud of the continued excellent patient outcomes the physicians and clinicians have achieved."

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Treatment Program office is located in the Medical Office Building, next to the hospital at 250 2nd Street East, Suite 4E, Bradenton. You can reach their office at 941.745.7251.
