The criteria for achieving the “Center of Excellence” status involves 4 primary tasks and key performance measures: 

Task:                                          Minimum                                   Fulton & Mason County Wound Clinic 

Healing Rate                                 91%                                                    96.9%

Median Days to Heal plan          <30 days                                               21 days

Patient Outlier Rate                     <19%                                                   14.2%

Patient Satisfaction                      92%                                                     93.6%

 In addition, the team must encourage and educate patients on the importance of keeping weekly wound care appointments and complete patient care plans, as well. Dr. Roudebush (Medical Director) and the entire wound care nursing team work hard to utilize the most efficient treatment plan available for each and every patient, and our recent award signifies that they are doing just that!

Millions of patients unnecessarily suffer with non-healing advanced wounds, when there is simply no need to. The Fulton & Mason County Wound Clinic offers individualized healing plans based off of the cause of the wound, age of the wound, state of the wound, and the patient’s ability to care for the wound at home. There are a variety of advanced therapies to help with hard-to-heal and chronic wounds not reacting to conservative treatment, including, but not limited to, hyperbaric oxygen therapy. 

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (309) 649-6867. Self-referrals are accepted, meaning: you do not need a physician’s order for your wound to be assessed and treated.
