Clinical excellence in wound care recognized

On April 11, Bothwell Wound Healing Center was named a recipient of the Center of Distinction award by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rate higher than 92 percent and a successful wound healing rate. This is the fifth time the Wound Center has been recognized by Healogics.

Keith Morrow, Clinic Operations vice president at Bothwell Regional Health Center, expressed appreciation for the center’s success in 2021 despite the extraordinary circumstances presented by the pandemic.

“We’re really proud of the team’s efforts to continue to treat patients and earn this recognition,” he said. “It says a lot about the character and perseverance of everyone on the team in maintaining a commitment to excellence with a people-first, patient-centered approach to care.”

Bothwell Wound Healing Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers. Dr. Jeff Wadley, Dr. Trevor Beckham and Nurse Practitioner Gail Meyer offer highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds that have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.

Advanced wound care treatments provided by the team include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.

Katie Case, Wound Healing Center director, said the medical team and staff work incredibly hard to treat patients like their own family.

“Chronic wound treatment is no easy road for our patients,” Case said. “Treatments can take a while and we get to know them and their families. This honor means we’re among the best of the best in providing exceptional patient experiences, and we’re humbled by the recognition.”
