This zone includes centers from 13 states, including Nevada, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Washington.

The Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center at Spring Valley Hospital earned a patient satisfaction rate of 97.5 percent; 93 percent of its patients’ wounds are healed within 30 days. The team cared for more than 500 patients in 2017, always with the goal of healing wounds, preventing amputations and improving patients’ quality of life.

“I’m very proud of our team’s dedication and expertise to healing complex wounds,” said Leonard Freehof, CEO of Spring Valley Hospital. “Along with wound care and hyperbaric medicine, we established a Limb Salvage program. Our focus is on prevention and early intervention to heal conditions affecting the legs, feet and toes, and help prevent the loss of a limb.”

The Wound Care Center® is under the direction of medical director Lubna Javed, MD, and program director Ernie Elliott. It offers specialized wound care to patients with diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds that have not healed in a timely manner. Advanced treatments include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, biological and biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies.

The Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center at Spring Valley Hospital also received the President’s Circle Award for exceeding clinical outcomes and operational goals for the second year in a row and the Center of Excellence Award for exceeding clinical outcomes for the second year in a row.
