Frisbie Memorial's Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine has received the 2012 Center of Distinction
by Healogics, Inc. Healogics is the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services. The Center for Wound Care has achieved outstanding patient outcomes for twelve consecutive months in the areas of patient satisfaction, wound healing rate, and other key quality outcomes.
The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to a poorer quality of life. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem, or chronic, wound.
The Center is an outpatient, hospital-based program staffed by a team of medical specialists that work closely with primary care providers to coordinate a care plan for each patient.
