Huguley Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Shatters 2008 National Healing Average
In 2008, Huguley Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine was able to heal 96% of problem wounds, compared to a national average of 82%. The 2008 benchmark study of wound care facilities nationwide was conducted by Net Health Systems, Inc., the leading provider of clinical information systems in wound care.
“Since we opened in 2006, our outcomes have been significantly above the national average. We continue to build on our prior success and improve our ability to facilitate healing. Our successful outcomes are due to our team approach. Experts from many disciplines collaborate to find a unique solution for each difficult wound,” explained Nikki Ralston, P.T., C.W.S., M.B.A., director of the Huguley Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine.
The Huguley Center for Wound Care treats problem wounds and slow-healing wounds with a team of specially trained physicians, certified wound specialists, wound-care nurses, physical therapists and hyperbaric technicians. They develop an individualized treatment plan which can include hyperbaric medicine, bioengineered skin grafts, growth factor therapy, and advanced wound-care dressings.
In 2008, Huguley Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine moved into a new location that offers patients more privacy and a more pleasant environment. More staff and an additional hyperbaric oxygen chamber were also added to accommodate an increase in patient visits.
