Largo, FL – Largo Medical Center physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered to recognize the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine 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 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 92 percent within 28 median days to heal. There were 555 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award and 278 achieved the honor.
“It is an honor for our team to receive such recognition for their daily commitment to our patients and the quality of care they provide,” said Adam Rudd, CEO at Largo Medical Center.
The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine 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.
“Our wound care team works very hard to provide the quality care recognized by the Center of Distinction award,” said Dr. Robyn Ache, the program’s medical director. “Our outstanding patient satisfaction scores are noteworthy, because they indicate how much our patients appreciate the care they are receiving, but our healing rates are the true indicators of our program’s success. We are extremely proud of them, just as we are very grateful for the recognition that the Center of Distinction award carries.”
