The Wilson Health Wound & Hyperbaric Center is a dual recipient of RestorixHealth's National Clinical Distinction and Patient Satisfaction Awards. Recipients of these awards meet or exceed national quality benchmarks over a set period of time. This biannual award acknowledges exceptional success in wound healing rates, safety goals, and excellence in patient satisfaction.
"This achievement reaffirms the quality of care the Wound & Hyperbaric Center provides its patients every day," said Bridget McDonald, RN, Program Director of Wilson Health's Wound Treatment Center. "Despite a daunting pandemic, we have been able to maintain clinical excellence and we are proud to be a recipient of these awards that recognize the hard work and dedication of our staff."
A wound that is not healing properly may be complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected. Other types of hard-to-heal wounds result from pressure, trauma, or infection. Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
The Wound & Hyperbaric Center at Wilson Health will also provide assistance and care to patients before and after ostomy surgery including new patient education, as well as troubleshooting.
