JACKSON — Holzer Wound Care Center physicians, leaders, and clinicians are proud to announce that the center in Jackson has received the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence Award.
This center 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, for a minimum of two consecutive years by Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
“Holzer Medical Center – Jackson has an outstanding wound care program in place and receiving the Center of Distinction further demonstrates this fact,” stated Holzer Wound Care Center Program Director Rachel Kearns. “We are proud to offer an excellent panel of physicians and clinical staff dedicated to the needs of our patients who come to us with their non-healing wounds.”
Holzer Wound Care Center is staffed with a unique team of doctors, nurses, and therapists, all dedicated to healing chronic wounds. The causes of wounds are complex, and the team offers expertise in all areas needed to handle a patient's wound circumstances.
The center 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.
Some of the leading-edge treatments offered at the Wound Care 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.
