Wound Care Award

Accolades for The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center

For the second year in a row, the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at The Chester County Hospital has been awarded both the Center of Distinction award and the Robert A Warriner MD Center of Excellence award from Diversified Clinical Services, the Hospital's Wound Management Partner Company. Both awards recognize the impressive patient outcomes and outstanding care provided by the Center in 2009. During this time the Center has met or exceeded the Diversified benchmarks for Healing Outcomes, Patient Satisfaction, Outlier Management, and Days to Heal.

"These two awards are yet another recognition of the great care provided by our team of support staff, nurses and physicians," notes Andrew Fazio, Director, Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center. "With the re-certification of our Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval coming up, we feel good that we are on the right track to continuing to provide superior state-of-the-art care to our patients."

In 2008 the Center was one of six areas of The Chester County Hospital to receive a Disease-Specific Care Certification and the resulting Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission, the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting accrediting body in healthcare.

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center is an outpatient service of The Chester County Hospital in collaboration with Diversified Clinical Services, Inc. Together, they have designed a service that provides a cost effective, outcome-oriented approach to wound healing.
