Mercy Iowa City

For the sixth straight year, Mercy Iowa City Wound and Vein Center is being recognized  as one of the nation’s top wound and vein centers after being named a 2022 Healogics Center of Distinction award winner.

To win the Center of Distinction Award, a center must have a patient satisfaction rate greater than or  equal to 92%. According to a news release sent by Mercy, the center achieved a 94% rating and also surpassed two other criteria to win the award

“We are honored to once again be named a Healogics Center of Distinction,” said Tom Clancy, president and CEO of Mercy Iowa City. “To win the award six years in a row is a direct reflection of the dedication of  our providers and patients. Our care team has put countless hours into making Mercy Iowa City a place  that our patients know and trust for compassionate, local care.”  

According to the release, nearly seven million individuals in America are affected by chronic, non-healing wounds. Without proper treatment, people may suffer for years  without any improvement and specialized care for chronic wounds is essential for successful treatment. Wound and vein care specialists complete advanced training to be able to adequately diagnose potential underlying conditions contributing to the wound, and prevent more severe treatment options, such as amputation.  

Mercy Wound and Vein Center is the only one of its kind in Johnson County, offering advanced outpatient treatments for patients suffering from chronic and non-healing wounds, the release states. Mercy’s approach includes access to a wide range of specialists and every patient is assigned a case manager to help  provide continuity and a highly individualized treatment plan.
