Fredericksburg, VA (March 25, 2019) – Stafford Hospital physicians, leaders and clinicians are celebrating the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence award, given to the Stafford Hospital Wound Healing Center of Woodbridge. The Center has achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal, for a minimum of two consecutive years. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services. Out of 413 eligible centers, 342 were honored with this award. The award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former Healogics Chief Medical Officer.

“Our team is proud to deliver quality, compassionate care to our community. We’re committed to supporting our patients in their healing journey and providing a better quality of life through wound healing services,“ said Marie Fredrick, Vice President of Ambulatory Services for Mary Washington Healthcare.

Leading edge treatments at the Center include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. 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.

“We have the tremendous privilege as a healthcare organization to provide support to our neighbors when they are going through some of the most vulnerable times in their lives. Through the lending of the Wound Care team expertise they have healed wounds and improved our patient’s quality of life. The care they provide is always delivered with kind words and warm smiles.
