The Wound Treatment Center at Jefferson Regional Medical Center received a national award for clinical excellence from Healogics.


Healogics is the largest wound-care management company in the nation, according to a news release.


“The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent and a wound-healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 31 median days,” according to the release. “Six hundred and thirty centers were eligible for the award in 2017 and only 334 achieved this honor.”


Misti Williams Rodriguez is program director of the center.


“I am so incredibly proud of this team and their outstanding accomplishment,” Rodriguez said. “Wound Care is very complex, so our physicians, nurses and staff are trained to be wound experts. We are so glad that we are able to offer a multitude of advanced wound-care therapies within our community of Pine Bluff and beyond.”
