Logansport Memorial Hospital physicians, leaders and clinicians gathered May 16 to recognize the Wound Care Center, a recipient of the Center of Distinction award 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 rate higher than 92 percent.

“We are extremely honored that our Wound Care Center has received this award of distinction once again,” comments Perry Gay, President and CEO of Logansport Memorial Hospital. “It takes a certain level of dedication, commitment, and clinical excellence to achieve this award year after year. It is a wonderful
reflection on the physicians and staff that are associated with our Wound Care Center. We could not be more pleased to share in this success with them, and with our community.

The Logansport Memorial Hospital Wound Care Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600
Wound Care Centers® and offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.

Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound
therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.

“It is an honor to be awarded ‘Center of Distinction 2021’ once again,” says Kari Hamilton, MSL, Program
Director for the Logansport Memorial Wound Care Center. “We could not have accomplished this award
without the support from Logansport Memorial Hospital Executive Team and the high level of specialty care from the Wound Care Center staff. The continued partnership between LMH and Healogics has proven that having specialty care close to home is a true asset in rural communities. We are committed to the care our patients receive, and thankful to have touched the lives of the patients we have healed. We are looking forward to healing more chronic wounds in the years to come.”

The Logansport Memorial Wound Care Center cares for people with wounds that have not begun to heal in two weeks, or have not completely healed in six weeks. Patients can be referred to the Logansport Memorial Wound Care Center by their primary care providers, or can refer themselves by calling (574) 753-1331 to make an appointment.
