Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care Center Receives Award
The Wound Care Center of Lake Charles Memorial Hospital recently received the Center of Distinction Award from Diversified Clinical Services (DCS), the nation’s leading wound care management company. Memorial’s Wound Care Center received this honor in recognition of its high patient satisfaction rates, exceptional healing results, and outstanding clinical outcomes over the past year.
Memorial’s Wound Care Center has achieved success in treating and curing chronic or non-healing wounds and in providing excellent care to its patients since its opening in 1992.
Larry Graham, Memorial Hospital CEO, commented on the award. “DCS brings tremendous resources and expertise to Memorial’s Wound Care Center, enabling us to meet the increasing need for this specialized care. We are thrilled to accept these awards, and proud to offer this quality service to the community.”
The Wound Care Center treats patients who are suffering from chronic and non-healing wounds – a serious disorder that can lead to amputation of limbs and impaired quality of life. They work with referring physicians to determine the most effective course of outpatient treatment.
“It’s an honor to receive this award from DCS,” said Evelyn Phillips, director of the Wound Care Center. “We are proud to be recognized for our work, but the real reward is being able to help our patients heal so that they can get back to living happy, healthy lives.”
