The longest open Center for Wound Healing located at Bayshore Medical Center, consistently boasts a wound healing rate of more than 95 percent. This is the third time the center has been named a Center of Excellence and the sixth time as a Center of Distinction.

“Not only can chronic or non-healing wounds be debilitating, but they can lead to more serious, life-changing conditions if they are not properly treated,” says Asaad Samra,M.D., medical director of the Center for Wound Healing at Bayshore Medical Center. “It’s important to utilize the latest techniques and technologies to increase the effectiveness of wound healing and at Bayshore Medical Center, we are fortunate to have a highly educated and dedicated team and the power of two hyperbaric oxygen chambers to help heal our patients. We are thrilled that our efforts continue to gain recognition.”

This is the second Center of Distinction award for Jersey Shore University Medical Center and the first time being named a Center of Excellence. The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for 12 consecutive months, including patient satisfaction higher than 92 percent and a minimum wound healing rate of at least 91 percent.

“Millions of Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. This can have a tremendous impact on quality of life, and even lead to death or loss of a limb,” says Richard Abramowitz, M.D., medical director of the Center for Wound Healing at Jersey Shore University Medical Center. “This distinction attests to the personal commitment and quality care that our team is dedicated to as we work with each and every patient to provide individualized care to heal wounds and change lives.”

This is the first time that Ocean Medical Center’s Center for Wound Healing has been recognized as a Center of Distinction. In 2016, the center achieved a healing rate of 97 percent.  

“Individuals with chronic wounds are among the sickest of the high-need population, and yet their connection to chronic diseases and conditions are often overlooked,” says Scott Cluley, M.D., medical director of the Center for Wound Healing at Ocean Medical Center. “Early diagnosis and treatment by a wound care specialist and a team of multidisciplinary experts who work together to optimize wound healing is key to managing the health of older patients with chronic diseases. We are delighted to be recognized as a Center of Distinction for wound healing for the first time and look forward to striving for excellence for many more years to come.”
