Sedalia, Missouri, May 19, 2017 – Bothwell Wound Healing Center physicians, leaders and staff recently celebrated the center’s Robert A Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence Award from Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
The Center of Excellence Award is given to wound care centers in the Healogics network that have met the highest level of quality standards for a minimum of two consecutive years. Among the criteria are patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent and a wound healing rate of at least 91 percent within 30 days.
Bothwell Wound Healing Center, which averages about 250 visits per month, offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from chronic wounds. Advanced treatments include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, debridement, biological and biosynthetic dressings, and growth factor therapies.
Program Director Katie Case said the most common wounds treated at the center are diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers and infections that have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. “Patients can make an appointment by simply calling our office,” she said. “They do not need a physician’s referral.”
Bothwell Wound Healing Center is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 800 centers, and provides access to best practices in the treatment of chronic wounds.
“Our community is fortunate to have an advanced wound center here in Sedalia,” said Jimmy Robertson, Bothwell’s chief executive officer. “This award recognizes the knowledge, teamwork and commitment of the staff and the outstanding wound care that patients receive here.”
