In March, Bothwell Wound Healing Center was named a recipient of the 2022 Center of Distinction award by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The center exceeded key performance indicators for 12 consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rate of 96 percent and a successful wound healing rate of 86 percent. The Wound Center has been open for 10 years and has been recognized by Healogics with the Center of Distinction or Center of Excellence award seven times.
Keith Morrow, Clinic Operations vice president at Bothwell Regional Health Center, said he is impressed by the center’s ability to be recognized for such a high honor in its history
“The Wound Healing Center continues to go above and beyond in patient care,” Morrow said. “It speaks volumes to be recognized for such an award numerous times over the years. I am impressed by each team member’s commitment to great care and look forward to seeing their continued success.”
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 medical 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, RN, BSN, Wound Healing Center director, said the medical team and staff work hard to create a team approach to caring for and healing their patients.
“Great quality of care, along with high healing rates is what we strive for every day,” Case said. “Each patient is paired with a case manager to ensure all their needs are met, including labs, radiology, antibiotics, off-loading devices, and home care. We also work with primary care practitioners to assist diabetic patients in blood sugar control. I am extremely proud of every person who works at the wound center; we are all invested in our patients’ healing journey.”
