Henderson physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered to celebrate the Center of Distinction Award, which was given to Maria Parham Advanced Wound Center by Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care 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 92 percent within 28 median days to heal. There were 601 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award and 367 achieved the honor.
“I am very grateful to be working with such outstanding staff here at the wound center,” said Dr. Cynthia Robinson, medical director for the center. “Our clinical outcomes are a reflection of their passion and dedication to healing patients.”
Maria Parham Advanced Wound Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® and provides access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds.
