Staff Report

With over 800 centers, including the Bayhealth Wound Care Center, Healogics, Inc. is the largest provider of wound care services in the U.S. Bayhealth Clinical Coordinator Julie Willey, RN, was recently recognized nationwide when Healogics awarded her the esteemed Mary Cook Nurse of the Year Award.

The award is named for Mary Cook, RN, a Healogics employee and wound care pioneer who passed away in 2010.

Healogics presents the award annually to a dedicated, skilled and compassionate nurse manager whose commitment to the patient and improvement in wound care is at the forefront of everything they do. “It’s a huge honor to be recognized nationally by Healogics,” Willey said. “To know that the work I did over the last year at Bayhealth was significant enough to win this award is very satisfying.”

Willey traveled to Arizona to accept the award during a lavish banquet and award ceremony. “I knew it was a big deal, but I didn’t know how big until I got there,” she said. “I had to give a speech at the award ceremony and they really went all out. It was a huge honor.”

Willey’s nomination outlined the many ways that she goes above and beyond her expected duties to ensure the successful healing of Bayhealth patients by furthering her education and demonstrating integrity and commitment while continually elevating the care she provides.

“She is a strong leader who leads by example. Anyone who has interacted with her will tell you she is an incredible role model and valuable resource,” a nominator wrote. “She demonstrates excellent patient care, optimal clinical outcomes and continually seeks opportunity to reach out to each and every patient in the community.”
