Good Samaritan is pleased to announce that The Good Samaritan Center for
Wound Healing is a recipient of RestorixHealth’s newly launched
Wound Center of Excellence awards. Recipients of this award meet or exceed
national wound care quality benchmarks in areas including healing outcomes
and safety, along with a patient satisfaction rate of 95% or higher.
“We are proud to be a recipient of this award that recognizes the
hard work, dedication and quality of care the staff at the Center for
Wound Healing provides to our patients every day,” said Shannon
Pepmeier, Program Director.
A wound that fails to respond to treatment after four weeks or has not
healed entirely in two months is considered to be a chronic wound. Often
complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems
or previous cancer treatment, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant
problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected. Other
types of chronic wounds result from pressure ulcers, trauma or infection.
Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may
adversely affect a person’s quality of life.
Good Samaritan’s Center for Wound Healing provides care to those
suffering from chronic wounds in a way no other provider can. Some wounds
require advanced dressings or extensive treatments that are difficult
to provide in a private office setting. Complex wounds may also require
multiple additional therapies or experienced wound nurses to provide specialized
care. A multi-disciplinary team of physicians and nurses offering the
most advanced therapies available, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy,
staffs Good Samaritan’s Center for Wound Healing.
The Center for Wound Healing is located at Good Samaritan and is open Monday
– Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For more information,
