Rockledge Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center RECOGNIZED WITH NATIONAL AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN WOUND HEALING

Rockledge, FL (May 15, 2019) – Rockledge Regional Medical Center physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered today to celebrate the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence award, which was given to Rockledge Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center. This Center has achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a remarkable healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days, for a minimum of two consecutive years. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services. The award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former Chief Medical Officer for Healogics.

“We are honored to receive this award as it exemplifies our commitment to quality service and patient care,” said Rockledge Regional Medical Center President, Andy Romine. “Our team of doctors, nursing staff and employees work well as a team to promote the healing of chronic wounds and help patients recover as quickly as possible.”

The Rockledge Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center is a member of the Healogics network of nearly 700 Wound Care Centers®, with access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds. Rockledge Regional Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Leading edge treatments at the Center include negative pressure wound therapy, 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.

“There are other wound care centers to choose from, however, our employees and physicians are truly what separate us. They go above and beyond to keep patients happy and to get them healed.”
