PIKEVILLE — The Pikeville Medical Wound Care Center was recognized as one of the top performers for the 2014 Diabetes Campaign by Healogics Inc.
Healogics’ Diabetes Campaign encouraged Wound Care Centers to utilize community outreach to educate health care providers about chronic wounds caused by diabetes.
A chronic wound is one that will not heal itself over time (within two to three months).
The Pikeville Medical Wound Care Center has been honored as one of the top five centers in the region. Their hard work and dedication to community education is valuable to patients and health care providers.
Pikeville Medical Wound Care Center Director Richard Davis said, “This award solidifies our wound care center as one of the best in the region. It takes a total team effort to grow the center and heal our patients. We are blessed to have some of the best nurses, technicians, support staff and physicians working in our clinic. Our team’s passion and love for the patients we serve is unparalleled.”
