Trumbull Memorial recognized with award

WARREN

The Wound Healing Center at ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital has again been recognized with a national award for continued excellence in wound healing.

Leaders, physicians and clinicians are celebrating the center’s receipt of the Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence Award. The Center of Excellence Award is given to Wound Care Centers in the Healogics network that meet the highest level of quality standards for a minimum of two-consecutive years.

The center has achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent, a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days along with several other quality standards for two years in a row.

The center was awarded the prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s leading and largest wound-care management company. The award is named after Dr. Warriner, a pioneer in wound care and the former chief medical officer of Healogics. Across the country, 334 centers were eligible, and 169 were honored with this award this year.
