ELIZABETH — The Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center, one of the top wound healing centers in the United States, received the Robert Warriner III, MD, “Center of Excellence” award from Diversified Clinical Services (DCS) in recognition of its excellent clinical results. The award salutes Trinitas for exceeding DCS’s benchmarks in Healing Outcomes, Patient Satisfaction, Outlier Management, and Clinical Performance.

The Warriner Award is the highest award given by DCS, named after renowned wound care expert Dr. Robert Warriner, Chief Medical Officer for DCS. The award is given to centers with 24 consecutive months of high patient satisfaction, exceptional healing results and outstanding clinical outcomes. Wound patients at Trinitas experienced a 95 percent heal rate, and an average of 29 days to heal their wounds. Patient satisfaction at Trinitas exceeded 93 percent. In attaining this recognition, Trinitas is in the top 15 percent of the 340 wound care centers managed by DCS.

“We are thrilled with this award, but it comes as no surprise,” explained Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trinitas Regional Medical Center. “With its healing rate consistently above 90 percent, we have always known that our Wound Center is among the best in the nation, and that our team, headed by Yoshinobu Mifune, MD, and Susan Harley, MPA, Program Director, is unsurpassed.” He added, “A hallmark of Trinitas is that we treat the most difficult wounds – the type that cannot be treated at many other hospitals and wound centers. Many patients come to us believing that amputation is their only option, and are delighted to find that we can heal their wounds.”

The Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center is known throughout the region for its innovation and use of the latest technology to heal wounds that don’t respond to conventional treatment. Many patients who have had months of traditional treatment have found the comprehensive and aggressive plan of care at Trinitas provides improved results within a relatively short period of time.

The option of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, which is offered at Trinitas, provides a safe and non-invasive treatment for patients with difficult wounds, crush injuries, acute burns, bone infection, and radiation injury. Patients receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy are placed in one of three special chambers at Trinitas that administer a 100 percent oxygen rich environment. The high level of oxygen reaches the wound through the bloodstream, resulting in improved healing, greater blood vessel formation and reduced likelihood of infection. The hyperbaric chambers used by Trinitas are among the largest and most comfortable available today.
