Parkland’s Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine has been recognized with a national award for continued excellence in wound healing. The Center received the prestigious Center of Excellence award for achieving the highest level of quality standards for a fourth year in a row.
To earn the award, the Parkland Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine needed to achieve patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent, a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days along with several other quality standards for four years in a row. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics™, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
“We know that over time as a wound persists or worsens, there is a greater likelihood of experiencing more significant medical complications,” said Peter Sebeny, MD, Parkland Center for Wounding Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. “Our multidisciplinary Center is unique in part to us having the ability to proactively track and measure our patients’ progress towards healing, addressing any barriers to healing such as inadequate blood supply, or infection, among other aspects. This affords better clinical outcomes for patients with chronic wounds.”
Parkland’s Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine provides comprehensive, specialized care for chronic, non–healing wounds. The Center offers advanced technology including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which stimulates wound healing and the growth of healthy tissues without the need for surgery. Together, the Center’s physicians who are trained in wound care and hyperbaric therapy, along with certified wound care nurses, offer a multidisciplinary approach to wound care that promotes faster recovery, less hospitalization, prevention of prolonged or permanent disability and a high healing rate for complicated wounds. You’ll benefit from the combined expertise and collaboration of physicians trained in wound care.
