Trumbull Regional Wound Healing Center Earns National Recognition

WARREN, Ohio — The Wound Healing Center at Trumbull Regional Medical Center received the Center of Distinction award from Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92%, and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 92% within 28 median days to heal, according to a press release.

Of the 555 centers eligible for the Center of Distinction award, only 278 received it. The Wound Healing Center at Trumbull Regional is the only center in the Mahoning Valley to receive such a distinction, according to the release.

“It’s an honor to be recognized with this distinguished award and a true testament to the quality care we provide to our patients,” said Steve Varkony, program director at the center. “Quality clinical lead benchmarks are being met every day, and that’s imperative. We’re able to combine best-practice clinical care with the most advanced technologies and compassion to achieve comprehensive successful outcomes.”

In addition, the center is celebrating Wound Care Awareness Week from June 7 to 11 with daily activities to raise awareness of the importance of healing wounds and having non-healing wounds checked and treated.

“Our goal is to raise awareness of treatment options available for these individuals with non-healing wounds” Varkony said. “A non-healing wound doesn’t have to be something that lasts forever. With the right course of treatment, you can see improvements in just a few visits.”
