Stamford Health Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center Recognized with National Award for Excellence in Wound Healing
Stamford, CT May 7, 2019 – The Stamford Health Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center has received the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D. Center of Excellence award for clinical performance in 2018. The award recognizes wound care centers throughout the country that consistently exceed standards for exceptional quality. For the third consecutive year, the Stamford Health center has achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal.
“We are honored to be recognized for delivering such a high level of care to our patients,” said Liz Longmore, Vice President, Ambulatory Services and Chief Operating Officer, Stamford Health Medical Group. “The exceptional team at the wound care center is highly trained in wound management and in treating challenging, chronic wounds. They work together with the patient's primary care physician to create unique programs tailored to each individual.”
The Stamford Health Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center offers highly specialized, advanced wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, trauma, and other wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Advanced treatments included bio-engineered skin substitutes, negative pressure wound therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, biological and biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The center, part of the Healogics Network of nearly 700 centers, provides a comprehensive outpatient program designed to speed healing, preserve limbs and prevent the recurrence of challenging wounds. Anyone with a wound that has not started to heal in two weeks or is not completely healed in six weeks may be a candidate for advanced care through the center.
