wound award

HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal Regional’s wound care center has received the Dr. Robert A. Warriner III Clinical Excellence Award. 

The wound care center scored in the top 10 percent of eligible Healogics Wound Care Centers on the clinical excellence measure, which is the comprehensive healing rate weighted by wound mix. The wound care center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The award is named for Warriner, a pioneer in wound care and the former chief medical officer for Healogics.

In a press release, Dr. Edward Cline, podiatric surgeon with Hannibal Regional Medical Group, said, “Receiving specialized care close to home allows patients to focus on getting better instead of getting to appointments. As part of the wound care center team, I am excited about receiving this award because it means we are not only providing much-needed care to the community, but we are providing the same exceptional care you might find in larger cities.” 

The wound care center at Hannibal Regional is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 wound care centers. It offers highly 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.

Likely candidates for treatment at the wound care center are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven’t healed within a reasonable time frame. People with wounds that have not improved with traditional methods of treatment may benefit from a visit to Hannibal Regional’s wound care center. 

The wound care center accepts appointments Monday through Friday.  For more information, call 573-231-1533.
