The Stormont Vail Wound Care Center Earns Center of Distinction Recognition from Healogics®

The Stormont Vail Wound Care Center in Topeka recently earned a Center of Distinction award by Healogics®, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services, for the sixth consecutive year. The Center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve continuous months, including patient satisfaction and a wound healing rate higher than 92 percent.

In 2022, 275 providers referred patients to the Wound Care Center, 1,057 new patients were seen, and more than 7,000 wound assessments were performed. These statistics signify the Stormont Vail Wound Care Center is growing to serve the community in a new way as 38 of the 275 referring providers are new and the number of new patients seen is record breaking since the clinic opened in 2004.

“This recognition is acknowledgement of our commitment to our community to heal patients,” said Karen Conley, program director. “Our team is dedicated to collaboration with community partners and throughout our organization to ensure we are treating patients in a timely manner, with the highest quality of care, which results in improved heal rates and patient satisfaction.”

Stormont Vail has two wound care locations – one in Topeka at 823 S.W. Mulvane and the other at the Flint Hills Campus in Junction City. Both partner with Healogics in the specialized treatment of wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Stormont Vail locations are part of a network of more than 600 Wound Care Centers®.

Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, 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.

Providers practicing at the center are Mitchell Bartley, DO; Christopher Brodine, DPM, CWS; Bita Haji Zadeh, M.D., CWS; Robert Holmes, M.D., CWS; Michael Smith, M.D.; and Donnett Streeter, APRN, CWS.
