Marietta Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care Center Receives Award
Marietta Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care Center has been named a Center of Distinction from Healogics, Inc., the world’s leading wound care & hyperbaric oxygen therapy management company. The Center has achieved outstanding patient outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including patient satisfaction over 92%, a 91% wound healing rate within 30 median days to heal, among other quality outcomes.
At Marietta Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care Center, over 600 patients in the community were provided specialized treatment for chronic and non-healing wounds in 2012.
Nate Black, Director of the Wound Care Center, commented, “Our Wound Care Center simply changes lives. Patients come to us after suffering from a non-healing wound for months, if not years. These patients might otherwise experience an amputation or other life-threatening conditions. We are proud to provide this specialized and needed service to our community and take pride in the quality of care we deliver. "
“We’re honored,” says Tammy Pierce, Clinical Nurse Manager of the Wound Care Center. “It’s a privilege to be part of a great collaborative effort between the hospital, physicians, and Healogics.
