Baptist Health Wound and Hyperbaric Center-Fort Smith Earns Award

FORT SMITH, Ark. (March 27, 2019) – Baptist Health Wound and Hyperbaric Center-Fort Smith recently earned the Center of Distinction Award, which was given by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

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 91 percent within 30 median days to heal.

“I am proud to work with an outstanding clinical team that is dedicated to serving our patients with the utmost respect and dignity,” said Quyen Ha, M.D. “Our team provides a healing environment focused on the needs of each individual patient. We strive to provide exemplary customer service and take great pride in serving our community.”

Baptist Health Wound and Hyperbaric Center-Fort Smith is located inside Baptist Health-Fort Smith. The center focuses on the healing process of complex or hard-to-heal wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, burns, skin tears, post-surgical incisions and radiation injuries. The center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.

Chronic, hard-to-heal wounds are a growing problem among our aging population and often affect those who suffer from diabetes or obesity. For those with certain health conditions, untreated wounds can lead to serious health complications and even amputation. If you are suffering from hard to heal wounds, your physician can refer you to a wound care specialist, if needed.
