SALEM - Salem Regional Medical Center's (SRMC) Wound Healing Center has achieved national recognition in earning the Healogics 2013 Center of Excellence Award. The Wound Healing Center (WHC) is one of only six wound healing facilities in Ohio to receive this award for performance excellence.
"This award represents quite an accomplishment for our staff," said Erica Stacy, R.N., WHC director. "It is only given to wound healing centers that have consistently excelled in key performance indicators and have qualified as a Center of Distinction in two consecutive years."
Each year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions prevent three to five million Americans from doing the activities they enjoy. Salem Regional Medical Center's WHC applies proven wound care practices and advanced clinical approaches including, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, to help heal chronic wounds.
"Since our WHC opened two years ago, over 600 patients have come to us for wound treatment, and last year 97 percent of them were discharged fully-healed," Stacy said. "In addition, our WHC has earned a patient satisfaction rating of 92 percent during the same time period."
SRMC's Wound Healing Center provides state-of-the-art treatment for: diabetic, venous and pressure ulcers; osteomyelitis; radionecrosis; infections; compromised skin grafts and flaps; wounds that haven't healed within 30 days.
According to Libre Johnson, M.D., WHC medical director, "Our team of specially-trained physicians and staff administers state-of-the-art wound healing treatments that are available locally to our patients. For example, one of the advanced treatments provided at the WHC is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which promotes healing by increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to damaged tissues. Last year, the WHC provided over 800 treatments using this method."
In addition to Dr. Johnson, other physicians providing specialized wound healing clinics at Salem Regional Medical Center's WHC include Indra Limbu, M.D.; Thomas Vrable, D.O.; Gregory Blasko, D.P.M.; Amanda Baright, D.O.; John Madison, M.D.; and Jonathan Pulido, M.D.
