The physicians, clinicians, and staff of the Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Asante Ashland Community Hospital recently earned the Center of Distinction Award from Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
The wound center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including patient satisfaction over 92 percent, a minimum 91 percent wound healing rate within 30 median days to heal, and other quality outcomes. Out of 511 centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, only 157 achieved the honor.
“This is the fourth time in five years that our center has been honored with this award,” said Yvonne Fried, MD, medical director of the wound center. “We are very proud of the work that we do for our patients.”
