Wound Care at Harrington Receives Center of Excellence Award

CHARLTON, Mass. – March 10, 2016 – The Wound Care Center at Harrington has received the Center of Excellence award by Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

Located at 10 North Main Street inside the Harrington HealthCare at Charlton building, The Wound Care Center achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent, among other quality standards for a minimum of two consecutive years.

Out of 168 eligible centers, only 110 were honored with this award.

“We take immense pride in our individualized, high quality patient care standards,” said Dr. Ravindra Acharya, medical director for The Wound Care Center. “This achievement speaks to the commitment every member of our team delivers every day, to every patient.”

The Wound Center opened in 2010 and has treated more than 1,900 patients. The center features a variety of comprehensive treatments for chronic, non-healing wounds, including specialty dressings, debridement, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility. An estimated eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds.

The Healogics Network includes nearly 800 centers, with access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds.
