Charles Grinder, APRN, recognized as a Certified Wound Specialist

Baxter Regional Medical Center is proud to recognize Charles Grinder, APRN, as a Certified Wound Specialist (CWS®). Charles Grinder is a nurse practitioner working alongside Dr. Eric Spann at the Baxter Regional Health System Hometown Clinic at Mountain View. Charles underwent many hours of hard work in preparation for the CWS® Examination and is the first provider in Stone County to be designated a Certified Wound Specialist.

Qualified candidates for certification in wound management are required to achieve a passing score on the examination in order to earn the designation CWS®. Board certification in wound management is achieved only through a rigorous process by the American Board of Wound Management (ABWM). Those who become certified in wound management through the ABWM have earned the professional designation of CWS®. CWSs are an elite group of healthcare professionals involved in wound management, and Charles Grinder, APRN, CWS, achieved this accomplishment in early May.

The American Board of Wound Management has certified approximately 4,000 individuals nationwide since 1995. Congratulations, Charles Grinder, APRN, CWS, on your certified designation!
