Columbus Specialty Hospital in Columbus, GA and WoundCentrics are pleased to announce their partnership in creating a systems-driven inpatient wound care and outreach program to provide clinical services to patients with wounds throughout the community. Licensed for 50 beds, Columbus Specialty is the only long-term acute care hospital in the city.
Bobby Saulnier, CEO of Columbus Specialty, recognized with mandated changes in admission criteria and reimbursement for wound patients it would be necessary for the hospital to find a partner to help successfully navigate the new realities of wound care. While attending the NALTH wound care conference last fall, Mr. Saulnier attended a presentation by Dr. Marcus Gitterle, CEO of WoundCentrics, that specifically addressed his concerns and led directly to the creation of the new partnership.
Dr. Robert Daniels, a General Surgeon and trained Hyperbaricist, who has decades of wound care experience is the local leader of the program. Lakeisha Dixon, FNP-C, will be on site at the facility daily as the medical provider for inpatients.
Post Acute Medical Specialty Hospital of Milwaukee, WI represents the seventh hospital in the Post Acute Medical system to partner with WoundCentrics. The 54-bed licensed facility is led by CEO Christine Peterson and is a relatively new acquisition for Post Acute Medical.
Recognizing the success of wound care program partnerships with WoundCentrics in other facilities and the Milwaukee facility’s needs for a coordinated, systems-driven approach, the decision to collaborate proved a natural fit.
Dr. Niraj Sawhney is a hyperbarics trained, Infectious Disease specialist with a long history of affiliation with the facility. He is serving as Medical Director of the wound care program. Tiffany Schwabe, FNP-BC is the on-site daily wound care provider.
