(4-12-21) Physicians, leaders and clinicians at the Grand Lake Wound Care Center have been recognized with two national awards for continued excellence in Wound Healing- the Center of Distinction award and the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Clinical Excellence award.  The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 % and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 92 % within 28 median days to heal. There were 555 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award and 278 achieved the honor.  The Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Clinical Excellence Award, is awarded to the top 10 percent of eligible Healogics® Wound Care Centers® on the Clinical Excellence measure, which is the Comprehensive Healing Rate weighted by wound mix. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. This award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former Chief Medical Officer for Healogics.

Holly Jacomet, Vice President of Quality and Physician Practices says –

“Our community is fortunate to have the Grand Lake Wound Care Center serving our residents for more than eleven years.  The quality of wound care therapy and hyperbaric oxygen treatments, have made a difference in their lives.  The providers and staff deliver excellent advanced wound care and is shown by their clinical outcomes and continued national recognition.  We are very proud to continue to set the standard of wound healing and provide a needed service to our community.”

The Grand Lake Wound Care Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® and 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.

Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, 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.

Dr. Lance Bryant, the Medical Director of the Grand Lake Wound Care Center

“We are proud to be able to offer such advance treatments right here in our own community. It has been a great experience to be involved with a group of dedicated health care professionals that continue to set the standard of wound healing.  This being our eighth consecutive year to receive this award, shows the dedication our nurses and providers have to heal wounds and give the patient ‘The Grand Experience’.”
