Wound Centers Provide Quality Care and Superior Service

March 15, 2018

There is comfort in knowing the best health care is available right in your own backyard. When it comes to wound healing, specifically, Atlantic Health System is the leading provider of superior outcomes throughout the region.

We offer significant value to patients through ongoing consultation privileges with the National Baromedical Services and the University of South Carolina,” says Susan Becker, nursing coordinator for Chilton Medical Center’s Comprehensive Wound Healing/Hyperbaric Center. “When we have questions about specific cases or protocols, we have 24/7 access to the nation’s leader in hyperbaric care. No other system in the region offers this level of access to quality care.”

The system’s wound healing centers offer modern treatments that can help prevent infection, loss of tissue, amputation and permanent disability. The majority of patients in the program, even those who have had chronic wounds for years, heal successfully and resume daily activities faster. Benchmark studies determine how quickly Atlantic Health System patients heal compared to national averages, and the results speak volumes.

Atlantic Health System takes the patient experience very seriously, too. So much so, they use anonymous patient satisfaction surveys to identify ways to improve the delivery of wound care services. Since 2009, patient satisfaction results have been at 97 percent or higher.

“You should always consider care quality options when making decisions,” says Becker. “But the experience is even better when overall service is superior. We take pride in the quality of our service, and our patients value us for that.”
