Staff from Jefferson Regional Medical Center (JRMC) gathered this week to celebrate the President’s Circle award, which was given to the JRMC Wound Treatment Center in recognition of the clinic’s outstanding performance. For two consecutive years, the Wound Treatment Center achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. Out of over 800 Centers, only 26 were honored with this award nationwide.
Peter Austin, JRMC Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, congratulated the Center for achieving the President’s Circle Award. “This puts them in an elite category of centers across the nation,” he said. “We appreciate the partnership we have with Medical Director, Dr. James Cagle, Program Director, Misti Rodriguez and the care team to provide services to patients in our region. They continue to go above and beyond to make sure patients receive high quality wound care services while also achieving high patient satisfaction and reaching their financial targets. We are proud of their achievements and look forward to their continued success.”
Misti Rodriguez, JRMC Wound Treatment Center Program Director, said she is proud of the Center’s employees. “This team is just awesome,” she said. “And we recognize that it takes each one of us to play our part to make the whole. It’s really a family here, and it’s nice to have this as a reflection of all that work. Without the support from all our joint partnerships, physicians and hospital administration, we would not be able to provide this service.”
