Advanced Wound Center Recognized with National Award for Clinical Excellence

Healogics Center of Distinction 2017 emblemFaith Regional Health Services physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered recently to celebrate the Center of Distinction Award, which was given to Faith Regional’s Advanced Wound Center by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound services. The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent, and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 91 percent within 30 median days to heal. There were 635 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction Award, but only 427 achieved the honor. Faith Regional was one of two in Nebraska.

“Our team is honored to receive this award,” said Tina McCarter, Director of the Advanced Wound Center. “Through the utilization of cutting-edge technology, the Advanced Wound Center at Faith Regional is privileged to provide a means for wounds to heal that otherwise might not. We are committed to advancing wound healing by creating, sharing and activating our wound care expertise for every patient that would benefit by the best means available.”

Faith Regional’s Advanced Wound Center is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 700 Wound Care Centers® and provides access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds. The Advanced Wound 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. Advanced treatments include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, biological and biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies.

“World class wound care can be found right here at Faith Regional Health Services,” said Dr. Jason Bailey. “As is evident by our recent Center of Distinction Award, we provide skilled care to our patients that produce results and save lives.”

“It has been a privilege to work with the team at the Advanced Wound Center, partnering with referring providers from across northeast Nebraska to build relationships and care for those with chronic non-healing wounds with a vast variety of cures,” said Dr. John Huscher. “We see some of our patients for many weeks, working together, and we are as happy as they are when their wounds finally heal.”
