Natchitoches Regional Medical Center has been recognized with the national Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award, and obtained a ranking in the top 7% nationally. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s leading and largest wound care management company.
NRMC has also received national recognition for patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent, a healing rate higher than 91 percent in less than 31 median days along with several other quality standards for two years in a row.
“Since opening the Center in 2015, our physicians and associates have helped to save limbs and lives, and they do so with compassion, commitment, and a high level of expertise,” explained Kirk Soileau, Chief Executive Officer. “For them to receive this outstanding award is truly inspirational to our entire organization. I want to thank our doctors and associates for the excellent patient care they are providing our community each and every day.”
NRMC offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Some of the leading-edge treatments offered at NRMC include negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, application of cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes to the wound, offloading or total contact casts and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
