St. Mary wound center recognized with national award


St. Mary Medical Center physicians, leaders and clinicians received the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence award, which was given to the St. Mary Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine.

The 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.

The center was awarded the honor by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. Out of 413 eligible centers, 342 were honored with the award. The award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former chief medical officer for Healogics.

The St. Mary Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 700 wound care centers.

St. Mary Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine offers highly specialized wound care to patients with diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds that have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Leading edge treatments at the center include negative pressure wound therapy, 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.
