The South County Health Wound Care Center has been recognized with a national award for continued excellence in wound healing and for clinical excellence by Healogics Inc., the nation’s leading and largest wound care management company.

For nine consecutive years, the South County Health Wound Care Center has received the Robert Warriner III MD Center of Excellence Award.

To meet the criteria for the Center of Excellence Award, the South County Health Wound Care Center achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent, a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days, along with several other quality standards for two years in a row. Across the country, there were 630 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, of which 334 achieved this honor in 2018.

The South County Health Wound Care Center was established in 2004 and since then has seen thousands of patients with non-healing wounds. A non-healing wound is one that has not responded to standard medical treatment; they can be caused by diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, venous disease, pressure ulcers, lymphedema, burns, surgical incisions, chronic inflammation, or other conditions.
