Center for Wound Care recognized with national award


Staff from Adventist Health Sonora’s Center for Wound Care celebrated the center’s receipt of the Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award, a national award.

The award is given to wound care centers in the Healogics network that have met the highest standards for at least two consecutive years.

The Center for Wound Care has achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent, a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days along with several other quality standards for two years in a row, according to a press release from Adventist Health Sonora.

The center was awarded the honor by Healogics. The award is named for a pioneer in wound care and the former chief medical officer for Healogics. Across the country, 334 centers were eligible and 169 were honored.

The Wound Care Center is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 800 centers that combined treat approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds.

The Center for Wound Care offers specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds that have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.

Some of the leading-edge treatments offered at the center include negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, application of cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes to the wound, offloading or total contact casts and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
