South Pointe Plaza earns South Florida’s First Center of Excellence for Wound Care Designation

South Pointe Plaza was the first skilled nursing center in South Florida to earn Center of Excellence for Wound Care certification from VOHRA Wound Physicians, the nation’s largest multi-specialty post-acute physician group. South Pointe is one of only 25 skilled nursing centers in the entire country to earn this designation.

The VOHRA Center of Excellence for Wound Management Program identifies and honors facilities that have established superior wound management programs. These facilities must meet multiple requirements such as having a less-than-one-percent wound-related re-hospitalization rate as well as having a verified outcomes-focused wound care program led by a physician specialist and staffed by certified wound care nurses seven days a week.

The VOHRA program emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach. At South Pointe, the VOHRA wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, certified wound care nurses and other specialists to ensure that residents are receiving excellent wound care.
