ROME, N.Y. — Rome Health’s Wound Care Center was recognized as a Healogics Center of Distinction and won the Robert A. Warriner III Clinical Excellence Award for 2023, the hospital recently announced.

The awards demonstrate the wound center’s continued and consistent commitment to excellence and its focus on the patient experience. Located at 267 Avery Lane in Griffiss Business and Technology Park, the wound center provides comprehensive treatment for chronic wounds.

To receive the Center of Distinction award, a center must be conducting the medical-surveillance review process per policy and excel in key performance indicators. Those include having patient satisfaction of at least 92 percent, having a wound-adjusted comprehensive healing rate (waCHR) of at least 77 percent, and having an outlier rate less than or equal to 16 percent.

To receive the Clinical Excellence Award, a center must achieve a waCHR of 83 percent or higher. Rome Health’s Wound Care Center earned a waCHR of 83.3 percent, which puts the facility and its staff at platinum level.

According to statistics, each year about 6.7 million Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds caused by diabetes, circulatory problems, and many other conditions.

Treatment options available at Rome Health’s Wound Care Center include debridement, topical wound therapy, cellular and tissue-based therapy, compression therapy, hyperbaric-oxygen therapy, and negative-pressure wound therapy.

Rome Health is a nonprofit health-care system that is an affiliate of St. Joseph’s Health and an affiliated clinical site of New York Medical College.
