Monday, March 11, 2019 - Wound and Vein Center at Mercy Iowa City recognized nationally for clinical excellence

The Wound and Vein Center at Mercy Iowa City has been recognized with a national award for clinical excellence.

The Center was named a 2018 Healogics President's Circle Center of Excellence by achieving or exceeding outstanding clinical and operational results in 2018, for at least two consecutive years. The Center achieved:

* A greater than 93% Patient Satisfaction Rate

* A greater than 95% Healing Rate in less than 22 median days to heal

According to Healogics, earning this award demonstrates the Mercy Iowa City Wound and Vein Center’s continued and consistent commitment to patients, and a focus on creating an exceptional patient experience.

“Mercy Iowa City’s Wound and Vein Center has continued to increase services and capacity to care for patients since its opening, growing into a new and larger space within the hospital to serve even more with care and compassion,” said Sean Williams, President and CEO. “In the last year alone, the Center served more than 700 new patients with extraordinary success, improving their quality of life and helping them return to their normal activities.”

The Mercy Wound and Vein Center provides advanced outpatient treatment for chronic and non-healing wounds and is the only facility of its kind in Johnson County. An experienced team, cutting-edge treatments, and evidence-based clinical protocols provide superior healing outcomes for difficult to heal wounds. Mercy's approach includes access to specialists in orthopedic surgery, infectious diseases, podiatry and nutrition. Treatment plans are highly individualized.
