Southeastern Wound Healing Center (SWHC) was recently honored with the Center of Distinction Award, which was given by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent, and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 91 percent within 30 median days to heal. There were 512 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, but only 221 achieved the honor and, in North Carolina, SWHC was one of only 12 centers recognized. SWHC has been recognized with this award four out of the past five years.
“I am very grateful to be working with such outstanding staff here at the wound center,” said SWHC Medical Director Dr. Karl Moo Young. “Our clinical outcomes are a reflection of their passion and dedication to healing patients.”
