Atlantic General Hospital physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered May 30 to celebrate the Wound Care Center’s receipt of the Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award.

The Center of Excellence award is given to wound care centers in the Healogics network that have met the highest level of quality standards for a minimum of two consecutive years.

Atlantic General’s Wound Care Center achieved patient satisfaction rates of 95.9 percent, a healing rate of 94.77 percent in less than 31 median days along with several other quality standards for nine years in a row.

The center was awarded this honor by Healogics, a wound care management company. The award is named for Warriner, a pioneer in wound care and the former chief medical officer for Healogics. Across the country, 340 centers were eligible and 268 centers were honored with this award for 2017.
