The Columbus Regional Health Wound Center has been recognized with a national award for clinical excellence.

Healogics, the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services, awarded the Wound Center with this distinction. The Wound Center achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal, for a minimum of two consecutive years.

The Wound Center is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 800 centers, with access to bench-marking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds. The Wound Center offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.

Some of the leading-edge treatments offered at the Columbus Regional Health Wound Care Center include negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, application of cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes to the wound, offloading or total contact casts and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
