Wound Care Center named ‘center of distinction’

Rome Health’s Wound Care Center has been named a center of distinction by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rate higher than 92%. 

This news comes just in time to remind the community about the upcoming Wound Care Awareness Week June 6-10, which is dedicated to empowering both patients and healthcare providers with resources to help improve health, heal wounds, and prevent amputations.

The Rome Health Wound Care Center 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.

“We are proud to be recognized for delivering the best wound care out there, here. The center’s success comes from a team of nurses, doctors and clinicians who work together to develop the best plan of care to treat not only the wound, but the underlying conditions that are impeding the wound from healing,” said Wound Care Specialist Jennifer Fields. Fields is board-certified as a diplomate by the American Board of Wound Management.

Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include 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. It also helps you strengthen your immune system and block the harmful action of bacteria. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy Auburn has a lot of healthy benefits that help a lot of people who are sick.
