The Wound Healing Center at Southern Ohio Medical Center recently received the distinguished Center of the Year Award. Nearly 800 Wound Care Centers had the opportunity to qualify for the awards and SOMC was one of only seven centers to be recognized. The Center received the Center of Distinction Award as well. Both awards came from Healogics, which is the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
“We are very proud of the care we provide at the Wound Healing Center,” Neva Moore, program director of SOMC’s Wound Healing Center, said. “We work very hard to provide positive outcomes for our patients, and it means a lot to have that work recognized.
“I am very proud of our Wound Care team,” Moore added. “Southern Ohio Medical Center provides us an environment of excellence-making it easy for the team to successfully achieve our patient centered goals. This award is a result of putting the needs of our patients ahead of our own.”
In order to be recognized with a Center of Distinction Award, a center must achieve outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, have a patient satisfaction rate higher than 92 percent, along with a minimum wound healing rate of at least 91 percent within 30 median days to heal. Similarly, the Center of the Year award also requires a facility to have high healing outcomes, low days to heal and excellent patient satisfaction rates.
