"Going the Distance" Quality Award Winner
The Boone County Hospital (BCH) Wound and Hyperbaric Center (W&HC) earned the 2020 “Going the Distance” Award, issued by RestorixHealth, an organization that specializes in the development and management of comprehensive wound healing and Amputation Prevention Center® facilities. Healthcare professionals have been tasked with maintaining quality through patient outcomes despite a daunting global pandemic. The “Going the Distance” Award acknowledges those outpatient wound healing centers who have achieved or exceeded nationwide patient outcome standards within a set period of time during 2020. The Boone Center was tracked from October through December 2020. To qualify, they had to meet four out of six benchmarked criteria.
“Our staff bring a wealth of talent to the wound healing workplace and that fuels a positive impact on our patients’ outcomes,” said Christine Streeter, BCH W&HC Director. “Amidst a pandemic, their dedication to healing is a sign of resilience and strong work ethic. We are proud to be recognized as a center that is “Going the Distance” and to receive an award that acknowledges our center as a nationwide leader in wound healing patient outcomes.”
Results are calculated by comparing the center’s patient outcomes against RestorixHealth nationwide benchmarks.
