• Rome Health Wound Care Center named Center of Distinction

    Rome Health’s Wound Care Center has been named a Center of Distinction by Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

    The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rate higher than 92 percent. This news comes just in time to remind the community about the upcoming Wound Care Awareness Week June 6-10, which is dedicated to empowering both patients and healthcare providers with resources to help improve health, heal wounds, and prevent amputations.

    The Rome Health Wound Care Center offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.

    “We are proud to be recognized for delivering the best wound care out there, here. The Center’s success comes from a team of nurses, doctors and clinicians who work together to develop the best plan of care to treat not only the wound, but the underlying conditions that are impeding the wound from healing,” explained Wound Care Specialist Jennifer Fields, MS, FNP, CWS. Fields is board certified as a diplomate by the American Board of Wound Management.

    Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.

    “Joining the team as a new Program Director, I could not be more thrilled to be a part of such an amazing center,” said Program Director Miranda Majewicz. “This designation highlights the goal our team sets every day - to heal as many people as possible and give them the chance to live pain free.”

    The Rome Health Care Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers, which provided advanced wound care to more than 300,000 patients last year. As the industry leader, Healogics has the largest repository of chronic wound-specific patient data in the country. The Healogics Wound Science Initiative offers peer-reviewed research and advanced analytics in the pursuit of not only better outcomes, but a better way to provide care.
