Humility of Mary Health Partners will receive Center of Distinction Awards for its Wound Care Centers at St. Joseph and St. Elizabeth Boardman health centers during a ceremony at St. Joseph Health Center at 1 p.m. Monday, June 3, in the B lobby.
Healogics Inc., the largest provider of advanced wound care services in the United States, will present the awards in recognition of outstanding patient outcomes at both St. Joseph Wound Care Center and Hyperbaric Medicine and St. Elizabeth Boardman Wound Care Center. These wound care centers earned the awards by achieving a 91% wound healing rate within 30 median days, patient satisfaction exceeding 92% and other quality outcomes.
St. Elizabeth Wound Care Center and St. Joseph Wound Care Center and Hyperbaric Medicine are members of the Healogics network of more than 500 centers that provide access to benchmarking data and proven experience, having collectively treated more than 2 million chronic wounds.
“The wound care centers at Humility of Mary Health Partners specialize in treating chronic, non-healing wounds that, without the specialized treatment and expertise that our caregivers provide, could very easily result in amputations or life-threatening complications,” observes Charlene Carabbia, program director, HMHP Wound Care Centers and Hyperbaric Medicine. “We are very proud to provide this specialized service to the families of the Mahoning Valley.”
Representatives from the St. Joseph and St. Elizabeth Boardman wound care centers, HMHP and Healogics will be available for interviews following the presentations. Reporters should enter St. Joseph Health Center through the B entrance.
