Southeastern Wound Healing Center recognized for healing wounds and changing lives

Lumberton, NC - Southeastern Wound Healing Center was recently named a Center of Distinction by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

The Center, which is managed by Healogics and operated by Southeastern Health, has achieved outstanding patient outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction over 92 percent, and a 91 percent wound healing rate within 30 days to heal.

“Our center heals chronic wounds of patients who might otherwise experience an amputation or other life-threatening conditions,” said Southeastern Wound Healing Center Manager Kathy Hansen. “We are proud to provide this specialized and needed service to our community."

The Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 500 centers, which provides access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating over 2 million chronic wounds. In Fiscal Year 2012, more than 2,000 patients throughout the region were provided specialized treatment for chronic and non-healing wounds at the Center.

“We’re honored, “ said Dr. Barry Williamson, medical director for the center. “It’s a privilege to be part of a great collaborative effort between the hospital, physicians, and Healogics. Together, we are able to heal patients in our community, helping them get back to living happy, healthy lives.”

No referral is required to schedule an appointment at the center, which offers treatment, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, for chronic wounds. For more information, call 738-3836.
