Physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered recently at Presence Saint Francis Hospital to celebrate the Center of Distinction Award, given to the hospital’s Wound Healing Center by Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The center has achieved outstanding patient outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction over 92 percent and a 91 percent wound healing rate within 30 median days to heal, among other quality outcomes. The award was presented by Carolyn Shinn, senior director of clinical operations at Healogics, Inc.

Rick Lavacchi, vice president for professional services at Presence Saint Francis Hospital, said, “Our Wound Healing Center heals chronic wounds of patients who might otherwise experience an amputation or other life-threatening conditions. We are proud to provide this specialized and needed service to our community.”

“We’re honored,” said Diane Zintak, director of the Wound Healing Center. “It’s a privilege to be part of a great collaborative effort between the hospital, physicians and Healogics. Together, we are able to heal patients in our community, getting them get back to living happy, healthy lives.”
