WMMC’s Advanced Wound Center Recognized for Clinical Excellence in Patient Satisfaction and Wound Healing Rates
Warrensburg, MO (April 19, 2022) – Western Missouri Medical Center’s physicians, leaders, and clinicians gathered today to recognize Advanced Wound Center, a recipient of the Center of Distinction award by Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rate higher than 92 percent.
The Advanced Wound Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® and offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.
Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings, and growth factor therapies. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.
“We are honored to win the Center of Distinction award for 2021,” said Paula Carpenter, Program Director of WMMC’s Advanced Wound Care. “We have a wonderful group of providers, clinicians, and staff that work diligently to provide our patients with exceptional wound care with excellent treatment and healing outcomes. I am so proud of the great work we do at the Advanced Wound Center.”
