The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent, and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 92 percent within 28 median days to heal.
“We are fortunate to have a strong group of clinicians that have the ability and willingness to relate to our patients while providing them with both a great patient experience and clinical excellence that helps them on their healing journey,” said Baptist Health Madisonville President Robert Ramey.
