Lanham, MD – Doctors Community Hospital’s Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine is one of Healogics, Inc., top performers for the 2014 Diabetes Campaign.
The Diabetes Campaign encouraged each Healogics Wound Care Center to utilize community outreach to educate healthcare providers about chronic wounds caused by diabetes. Doctors Community Hospital’s Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine was honored as one of the top five centers in its area. The center celebrated this accomplishment with an all-staff gathering and will have a plaque placed to showcase its dedication to the community.
According to the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Vital Statistics Administration report, about 12 percent of Prince George’s County residents have diabetes. Additionally, there are significant disparities in the county regarding diabetes-related deaths. To further help community members manage this complex disease, the hospital’s Joslin Diabetes Center also provides support groups and free educational materials. Also, it provides free diabetes screenings in partnership with the Prince George’s County Health Department through an On the Road Diabetes program that travels throughout the area.
