Wound Care Center Nationally Recognized For Clinical Excellence

Stamford Health’s Wound Care, Ostomy and Hyperbaric Center received the Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award for meeting the highest level of quality standards set by Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. This is the fourth consecutive year the Center earned this distinction as well as the first time it has been named to Healogics’s President’s Circle – an honor reserved for the top four percent of Healogics centers that demonstrate outstanding performance.

“The Center’s goal is to work with our patients to enhance their quality of life, and that’s what we focus on when we treat their wounds,” said Joey C. Papa, MD, Medical Director of the Wound Care, Hyperbaric and Ostomy Center at Stamford Health. “On behalf of our physicians, nurses and staff, we are extremely honored to receive this award and be named to the President’s Circle. I am proud to work with a team so dedicated to consistently providing compassionate and patient-centered care while meeting demanding quality outcomes.”

To reach this accomplishment, the Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days, among other quality standards for a minimum of two years. Out of nearly 334 wound care centers across the country eligible, 169 were honored with this award for clinical excellence.
