Methodist Fremont Health’s Center for Wound Healing recognized for excellence in patient satisfaction and outcomes

Published: March 27, 2024

Methodist Fremont Health’s Center for Wound Healing has been awarded the prestigious President’s Circle award by Healogics, the nation's largest provider of advanced wound care services. This award is Healogics’ most honored recognition for centers that achieve clinical and operational excellence and was given to only 34 centers nationwide.

The Center for Wound Healing – one of more than 600 centers that make up the Healogics Wound Care Center network – utilizes a comprehensive clinical pathway for patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and a variety of other chronic wounds. Last year, the center – which opened in August 2010 – provided advanced wound care to more than 600 patients while obtaining a 97% heal rate and 95% patient satisfaction rate.

“We understand the impact that a wound can have on a person’s quality of life,” said Adam Pentel, DO, medical director for the Methodist Fremont Health Center for Wound Healing. “Our evidence-based and compassionate approach focuses on truly healing – rather than simply treating – our patients’ wounds, which also often heals other aspects of their health and well-being.”

Methodist’s advanced wound care modalities include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, the use of bioengineered tissue and biosynthetic dressings, and growth factor therapies. The center is also home to two hyperbaric oxygen chambers, which surround patients with 100% pressurized oxygen to help accelerate healing for a variety of issues, including soft tissue radionecrosis, chronic refractory osteomyelitis, grade 3-5 diabetic ulcers and more.

The provider-based clinic is led by Dr. Pentel, program director Betsy Flores, RN, and clinical nurse manager Abbie Nieman, RN.
