WoundCentrics and Guadalupe Regional Medical Center (GRMC) are pleased to announce a partnership in operating an outpatient wound care and hyperbarics clinic for patients in Seguin, TX and surrounding counties.
GRMC is licensed for 125 beds and is city/county, non-profit hospital that does not rely upon tax dollars - a unique facility in the State of Texas. The hospital has operated a wound center for many years but recently reached out to WoundCentrics seeking our management expertise and unique approach to clinic operations to improve outcomes for patients.
After coming to agreement that this partnership would be mutually beneficial, Dr. Marcus Gitterle, CEO of WoundCentrics, led an effort to educate the local medical community regarding our approach and his efforts solidified much-needed support for the program - a critical component to success.
The Medical Director for the clinic is Dr. Michael Chaney. Dr. Chaney is a Plastic Surgeon as well as a certified Hyperbaricist and he has very quickly led a positive transition of staff and culture in the clinic that is appreciated by clinical and administrative personnel at GRMC.
In addition to the outpatient services, clinic-affiliated providers are now rounding on wound patients in the GRMC inpatient population which helps create a more cohesive and coordinated approach to wound care at the facility.
The WoundCentrics model of true partnership and shared goals with facilities and our extension into the greater continuum of wound care has fostered greater confidence in the clinic as well as improved volumes in a very short time.
