Wednesday, June 14, 2017
The Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center at Spring Valley Hospital has been recognized with the Center of Distinction award for clinical excellence in wound healing from Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.
The outpatient center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent, and a wound healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days. Out of 630 Centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, 334 achieved this honor in 2016. The wound care center also received the President’s Circle award from Healogics, underscoring its achievements since opening in January 2016.
“This award showcases the quality of advanced wound care we provide in southern Nevada,” said Leonard Freehof, CEO of Spring Valley Hospital. “Non-healing wounds can lead to extensive medical issues, even amputation in worse case scenarios. Providing specialized wound care to people with diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers or other chronic wounds can vastly improve their quality of life.”
To treat patients, the health care professionals at the Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center at Spring Valley Hospital utilize treatments such as 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. The center is located at 5320 South Rainbow Boulevard, Suite 154, on the campus of Spring Valley Hospital and may be reached at 702-853-3853.
