LUMBERTON — Southeastern Wound Healing Center has earned the Center of Distinction Award from Healogics Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction over 92 percent, a minimum 91 percent wound healing rate within 30 median days to heal, and other quality outcomes. There were 511 centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award and only 157 achieved the honor. This is the second consecutive year that Southeastern Wound Healing Center has been selected for this recognition.
“The Wound Center has improved the health of Robeson and surrounding counties by healing patients previously thought chronic and un-healable,” said Dr. Barry Williamson, medical director at Southeastern Wound Healing Center. “It is a great resource for patients and physicians alike.”
