At MedCentris, our goal is to heal the wounds of our patients in the shortest time possible so they can get back to living.
How do we do this? We have a patient-centered focus. And from the beginning, we have worked to deliver the best possible healthcare to our patients by employing the best clinicians.
Over the course of our company’s history, we’ve learned a thing or two about how to treat patients well.
Part of that is understanding how to be smart, efficient, insightful, and effective. While other companies in the wound care arena work in specific silos, i.e., in nursing homes or short-term acute care hospitals, we focus on the patient’s journey throughout the continuum of care. We employ the best and brightest to deliver outstanding care to our patients.
While treating the same patient, our Co-founders, CEO Shaun Carpenter, MD, and President Todd Shaffett, APRN, met by coincidence. They soon realized that their collaboration — a physician and a nurse practitioner – would benefit the industry by focusing on higher standards, new protocols and procedures, and the best training available. This became the impetus to form MedCentris.
We are primarily focused on training our clinicians to be the best at what they do.
Internally, we put any new provider through our rigorous Wound Medicine Specialist™ program — an extensive educational course where we cover didactic and hands-on training including:
- Ongoing periodic and annual QI/PI activities
- Advanced Wound Management Expertise
- Advanced Modalities in Wound Medicine
- Care for all type of wounds on all types of patients
- Collaboration with other care providers
