For the seventh year in a row, HSHS St. Joseph’s Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine  is the recipient of a national award for wound care.

The Center of Distinction award was presented to the hospital by Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rating higher than 92 percent. There were 601 centers eligible for the award and 367 achieved the honor.

“We’re proud and honored to accept this designation again for healing our patients at an exceptional rate,” said John Wagner, president and CEO of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital. “With our skilled colleagues and state-of-the-art technology, we’re grateful to provide this high-level care in the Chippewa Valley.”

The hospital’s wound care program manager, Toni McCutcheon, is thrilled for the hospital and its colleagues to accept this award.

“Our wound care clinics have provided health and healing in the Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire communities for nearly10 years,” said McCutcheon. “Our staff is highly trained in the most up-to-date, evidenced-based treatment methods to heal chronic wounds as quickly as possible. Most importantly, they are passionate about what they do. They are unmatched in the care and compassion they provide to our patients.”
