Dubois County Hospital earns special distinction

HUNTINGBURG, IN (WFIE) -
A medical center in Huntingburg has become the first in Indiana to receive the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval.

The Joint Commission is a not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies health care organizations across the country. And following a June inspection by the Joint Commission, Memorial Hospital and Health Care's Wound Care Center earned the distinction.

The hospital's executive VP Kyle Bennett says only eleven medical centers in the country have been recognized with this distinction.

"I think that they certainly saw the evidence-based care that's provided here," Bennett said. "And certainly, the staff here and the physicians, Dr. Rader, work hard to make sure that evidence-based medicine is what we practice," he said.

The hospital's Dr. Andrew Rader says the Wound Center is one of just two to receive the distinction in the Great Lakes area.
