SMC’s Wound Care Center received the RestorixHealth Center Clinical Distinction Award for the evaluation period of July to December 2019.
The Center was recognized along with 13 other hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country who met or surpassed the benchmarks in each of the recognition categories.
Wound Care Center Director Renee Knight said the two major categories are Days to Heal, and Healing Percentage Rate.
“For Days to Heal, the benchmark is 32 days on average,” Knight said. “Our average was 28 days.”
RestorixHealth’s benchmark for Healing Percentage Rate is 90 percent. SMC’s percentage is 97 percent.
“That’s why we got the award,” Knight said proudly.
RestorixHealth — the contract management company for outpatient wound care — was founded in 1997 by a group of physicians who believe in a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to healing patients with chronic wounds. Their mission is to restore health and improve the quality of life and access to care for patients with wounds.
