The Villages® Regional Hospital (TVRH) Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center has been recognized with a national award for continued excellence in wound healing. The Center received the prestigious Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award for achieving outstanding clinical outcomes. The TVRH Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center has been recognized as a Center of Excellence for three consecutive years.
Centers earning the Center of Excellence Award must excel in key performance indicators such as achieving outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent, a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days, among other quality standards, for two years in a row.
The TVRH Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics; the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services. The award is named for Dr. Warriner, a pioneer in wound care and the former Chief Medical Officer for Healogics. Across the country only 169 Centers were honored with this award in 2017.
"If you have a wound that has not healed or started to heal, we can help," commented Tom Leonard, MD, the Center's new Medical Director. "Our mission is to share wound care expertise everywhere we can, for anyone who would benefit, by the best means available."
The Villages® Regional Hospital Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed. Advanced treatments offered include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, biological and biosynthetic dressings, and growth factor therapies.
"Many people don't realize that a referral is not needed to be seen at the Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center," continues Dr. Leonard. "In most cases, we can see a patient and start healing them within 48 hours from the first call."
The Villages® Regional Hospital Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center opened in 2013 as an outpatient department of the hospital. The Center is located on the East Campus across 441 from the hospital. The phone number is (352) 751-8820 and the address is 1501 N. US Hwy 441, The Villages, FL.
