United Memorial Medical Center (UMMC) physicians, leaders, and clinicians will gather together to celebrate the Robert A. Warriner III, MD., Center of Excellence award, which is being presented to the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center. For two consecutive years, UMMC has achieved patient satisfaction rates of higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal. The Center is being awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. Out of 340 eligible Centers, 268 were honored with this award. The award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former Chief Medical Officer for Healogics.
Lisa Albanese, Program Director, announced the achievement. “This is the second consecutive year the center has received a distinction from Healogics. It is a direct reflection of the team’s ongoing commitment to patient-focused care and clinical excellence for our patients, the community and to our hospital partners.”
