NRMC Comprehensive Wound Healing Services Receives National Award
Natchitoches Regional Medical Center has been recognized with a national award for continued excellence in wound healing, the Robert A. Warriner III Center of Excellence award, and NRMC is in the top 7% nationally. The Center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s leading and largest wound care management company. The award is named for Dr. Warriner, a pioneer in wound care and the former Chief Medical Officer for Healogics.

The Center of Excellence award is given to Wound Care Centers® in the Healogics network that have met the highest level of quality standards for a minimum of two consecutive years.
