Hancock Regional Hospital celebrates the Center of Distinction Award and the Center of Excellence Award given to The Center for Wound Healing 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 91 percent within 30 median days to heal. For the Center of Excellence Award more than 334 centers were eligible for the award, but only 169 achieved the honor.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of the top wound care centers in the nation and congratulate our physicians, nurses and clinicians who’ve been identified as experts in wound care and hyperbaric medicine,” said Stacie Sarber, MBA, Hancock Regional Hospital’s Center for Wound Healing Program Director.
