St. Luke plans sock drive
St. Luke Hospital wound care center is collecting new youth and adult socks this month for Marion County Food Bank. Socks are the most requested clothing item during winter, and new socks are an effective means of preventing foot-related health problems. Socks can be dropped off at either the main lobby or the medical clinic.
The wound care clinic was recently received clinical distinction and patient satisfaction awards from RestorixHealth, an organization that operates wound clinics in four states, including 15 centers in Kansas, five in Arkansas, two in Texas, and three in Oklahoma.
The clinical award recognizes centers that have healing rates above 90%. The patient award recognizes centers with satisfaction scores of at least 96%.
The center takes an aggressive and comprehensive approach, using both traditional and advanced therapies to reduce healing time and improve healing rates. The wound care center is staffed with physicians, nurses, and technicians who have advanced training in wound care
