“We are proud to announce the CHI St. Vincent Wound Care Center has been recognized as a 2018 Healogics Center of Distinction,” said Dr. David Foster, president of the CHI St. Vincent Medical Group. “This recognition is awarded to wound care facilities that achieve excellent healing outcomes, high patient satisfaction scores and outstanding clinical performance. The dedication of Dr. David Dean, Paula Sargent, APRN and the entire team is truly remarkable, and we are excited for the recognition of their efforts in providing exceptional care to our patients.”
