Decatur Memorial Hospital’s Wound Clinic Receives Award


Healogics, a national wound care management company, recently named the clinic as a 2021 Center of Distinction.

“The Center of Distinction award reflects the incredible dedication of our clinical staff and providers,” said Dr. Dean Davis, medical director of the Memorial Wound Clinic. “With our individualized care plans, we transform our patients’ lives through healing. It is an honor to offer our patients exceptional wound care services right here at home.”

The clinic is a member of the Healogics network of more than 600 wound care centers. It offers specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds that have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.

The Memorial Wound Clinic’s services include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which surrounds the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of a wound.

The center logs more than 6,000 patient visits each year.

To earn the award, the Memorial Wound Clinic excelled in key clinical performance areas that include patient satisfaction and wound healing rates.
