Mount Nittany Health Center for Wound Care receives two awards for outstanding care

Mount Nittany Health Center for Wound Care recently received the Center of Distinction Award by Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. This year marks the fourth consecutive year that the Center for Wound Care has achieved this honor based on outstanding patient outcomes, and a patient satisfaction rating of 98 percent.

Additionally, the Center for Wound Care was recognized for meeting quality standards through the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence award.

Healogics has a network of more than 500 centers throughout the U.S. Only 12 centers have been honored with the Center of Distinction Award, according to Teresa Wilson, area vice president for Healogics.

Mount Nittany Health Center for Wound Care has a healing rate of 95 percent and the median day to heal is 22 days. More than 700 patients in the community were provided specialized treatment for chronic and non-healing wounds last year, often preventing amputations and helping patients return to active lives.

“It’s a privilege to be part of a great collaborative effort between the hospital and Healogics. Together, we are able to help patients heal and get them back to living happy, healthy lives,” said Maria Dawson, MHA, administrative director, Mount Nittany Health Center for Wound Care.

“We’re honored to be part of the team that is meeting the need in this community for specialized wound care,” said Wilson.
