Wound Care at Harrington Receives Center of Distinction Award
CHARLTON, Mass. – April 21, 2015 – The Wound Care Center at Harrington recently received the Center of Distinction Award by Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
The center, located at 10 North Main Street inside the Harrington HealthCare at Charlton building, not only achieved, but exceeded all clinical and quality benchmarks for 12 consecutive months.
The clinical and quality benchmarks included wound healing rates and patient satisfaction scores greater than 95 percent, among other quality outcomes.
There were 506 centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, but only 172 achieved the honor.
“We take immense pride in our individualized, high quality patient care standards,” said Lynn Boucher, Director of The Wound Care Center. “Our patients are our priority every day, and we are very happy to receive this award. This achievement speaks to the commitment every member of the team delivers every day, to every patient. This is the investment Harrington makes.”
The Wound Center opened in 2010 and has treated more than 1,500 new patients. The center features a variety of comprehensive treatments for chronic, non-healing wounds, including specialty dressings, debridement, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility. An estimated eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds.
The Wound Care Center at Harrington, part of Harrington HealthCare System, is a member of the Healogics Network of more than 635 centers, and provides access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating more than two million chronic wounds.
