Harrisonville – The Wound Center at Rock Haven Specialty Clinic, operated by Cass Regional Medical Center, has been recognized with a national award for clinical excellence.
Leaders, physicians and clinicians from Cass Regional gathered this week to celebrate the Center of Distinction award, which was given to The Wound Center at Rock Haven Specialty Clinic by Healogics, the nation’s leading and largest wound care management company.
The Wound Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent and a wound healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days. Out of 630 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, 334 achieved this honor in 2017.
“This accomplishment demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the highest quality of care especially in comparison to other centers within the nation,” said Chris Lang, CEO. “This should continue to demonstrate our competency in being a regional wound care provider to Cass County and the surrounding areas.”
The Wound Center is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 800 Centers, with access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds. The Wound Center at Rock Haven Specialty Clinic offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Some of the leading-edge treatments offered at the Wound Center include negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, application of cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes to the wound, offloading or total contact casts and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
“The Center for Distinction has been a goal of ours over the last couple of years. Last year we barely missed it by falling short on median days to heal. I am very happy for all of our physicians and nurses because I know how hard they work and how much they enjoy what they do,” Shaun Holden, MD, medical director of The Wound Center at Rock Haven Specialty Clinic said. “Hopefully this will bring more recognition to The Wound Center as I believe there are still many people who could benefit from our services who are unaware we have a specialty wound center in Harrisonville.”
