MercyOne Wound Care honored for excellence in healing

CLINTON, Iowa –  For the second year in a row, MercyOne Clinton Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center was recognized for its work.

RestorixHealth, a leader in the development and management of comprehensive wound healing and Amputation Prevention Center facilities, honored the MercyOne Clinton facility with the Wound Center of Excellence Award for the center’s dedication to healing wounds, saving limbs and optimizing patient outcomes. The center also received this award in 2022.

The Wound Center of Excellence Award distinguishes centers that have demonstrated exceptional success by meeting or exceeding clinical and operational benchmarks in several categories, including healing outcomes, adherence to clinical practice pathways and patient safety, along with a patient satisfaction rate of 96% or higher.

“We are extremely proud and honored to once again receive such a distinguished designation,” said Elizabeth Voss, program director of wound care services at MercyOne.

“This achievement reaffirms MercyOne’s mission of providing access to excellent health care services to our community. The center is staffed by clinicians with advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine. We have a very talented and collaborative team and a wonderful culture of excellence that puts our patients at the center of all that we do.”

The MercyOne Clinton Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center offers specialized wound care treatment for chronic wounds, applying proven wound care practices and advanced clinical approaches, including wound products, dressings, antibiotics and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which increases the amount of oxygen in the blood to improve the healing process for injured tissue.

The wound center team has healed more than 4,000 patients since the facility opened 10 years ago. The center was previously honored with RestorixHealth’s 2020 Going the Distance Award as a nationwide leader in patient outcomes for wound healing.
