Wound Care Recognized

BERLIN – Atlantic
General Hospital’s Wound Care Center has been named a Center of Excellence by
Diversified Clinical Services after receiving a second Center of Distinction
Award for delivering outstanding results for 12 consecutive months in 2009.

Diversified, a firm that
manages 300 wound centers nationwide, bestows Center of Distinction Awards in
recognition of an affiliated Wound Care Center meeting or exceeding benchmarks
in healing outcomes, patient satisfaction, and days to heal.

Atlantic General’s Wound Care Center for 2009 was 95 percent, compared to the
national benchmark of 79.5 percent. Atlantic General cut the benchmark for time
required to heal a wound nearly in half with a median of 27 days to heal. Consequently,

benchmark set forth by Diversified.

at Atlantic General strives to provide the most up-to-date technologies in the
treatment of chronic wounds,” said Geri Rosol, Wound Care Center program
director. “Employing best practices that adhere to a standardized set of clinical
practice guidelines, the AGH Wound Care Center staff works as a team to ensure
the best possible healing outcomes for our patients. This team approach coupled
with compassionate care sets us apart from other wound centers.”
