Fahrney Keedy certified as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management

BOONSBORO, Md. — Fahrney Keedy Senior Living Community has been certified by Vohra Wound Physicians as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management.

Only 10 percent of Vohra’s skilled nursing facility partners have qualified for this annual certification, according to a news release.

Fahrney Keedy has partnered with Vohra Wound Physicians to bring physician-led bedside wound care to its facility. A Vohra wound physician visits the facility weekly to treat residents with wound and skin issues. This reduces the need to send residents to wound care centers or hospitals, the release states.

The wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, staff nurses and other specialists.

The Fahrney Keedy team treats all types of wounds, including pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial wounds, diabetic neuropathic wounds, post-surgical wounds and others.

Established in 1905, Fahrney Keedy offers a broad spectrum of health services including independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing care, in-home care, rehabilitation therapy and other services.

The facility is implementing master plan for growth that will expand the physical site and include new programs. In addition, construction of an additional 18 beds in memory care and new medical adult day services has begun and is expected to be open by the summer.
