Salem Regional Wound Health Center Earns Recognition

SALEM, Ohio — Salem Regional Medical Center’s Wound Healing Center has been named a Center of Distinction by Healogics, a national provider of wound care services.

In the past eight years, the center has earned the recognition seven times, according to a company release. The distinction is for demonstrating continued clinical excellence in wound healing and superior patient satisfaction rates.

Over a 12-month period, the center recorded 94% patient satisfaction, a minimum healing rate of at least 92% and a median healing time of 21 days, spanning over 2,700 total encounters. 

Salem Regional Wound Healing Center offers hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy and other leading edge treatments for hard to heal wounds, which include diabetic, venous/arterial and pressure ulcers; osteomyelitis; radionecrosis; infections; compromised skin grafts and flaps; insect bites; thermal burns; and wounds that have not healed in 30 days.  

During the coronavirus pandemic, Salem Regional has taken additional health and safety precautions, including a reconfigured waiting area and scheduling that promotes social distancing, frequent sanitization of chairs, exam tables and patient care areas. Patients are asked to wear a mask to help maintain the health and safety of all patients and caregivers. Individuals who do not have a cloth mask will be given one upon entry that they will then return upon exit from the office.
