PINEHURST – The FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital Wound Care & Hyperbarics Center has been recognized as a National President’s Circle Award Winner for clinical excellence by Healogics, the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services.
FirstHealth Wound Care & Hyperbarics achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92% and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 92% within 28 median days to heal.
FirstHealth Moore Regional was one of only 32 centers nationwide (or top 5%) honored with this award and the only center in the state of North Carolina.
“We are honored to be recognized for our clinical excellence,” said David Strom, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon and medical director of FirstHealth Wound Care & Hyperbarics. “This designation emphasizes the goals we set forth for our wound care centers - to heal as many patients as possible and improve their quality of life.”
FirstHealth Wound Care & Hyperbarics is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers®and provides access to benchmarking data and proven experience treating approximately 2.5 million chronic wounds.
