Portsmouth Regional Hospital’s Wound Care Center was recently given the Center of Distinction award for its exemplary performance and patient satisfaction. Dr. Cameron Eilts of Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine had been an important provider on the Wound Care Center’s team. With an advanced training background in wound management, Dr. Eilts dedicates himself to caring for chronic, non-healing wounds using a multispecialty approach focused on rapid healing. His specialties are in podiatry, foot and ankle surgery and reconstruction, wound care, diabetic limb salvage, and others.
To receive this distinction, the Portsmouth Wound Care Center achieved “outstanding clinical outcomes” for twelve consecutive months. These criteria included a patient satisfaction rate greater than 92 percent, a minimum wound healing rate of 91 percent with 30 median days to heal, and other outcomes indicative of quality care.
