The Saint Elizabeth Burn Center, the region’s first dedicated burn unit, continues to save lives throughout the multi-state region. Our medical team helps each burn patient, adult or child make a physical, emotional and psychological recovery. From initial assessment through the ongoing healing process, a highly-skilled and caring multidisciplinary team uses the most current and effective therapies. The center includes an outpatient burn clinic for less serious burns or follow-up care for severe burns.    

Wound Care
When it comes to wound care, we have an impressive record of healing sores that others thought incurable, including many that would have resulted in amputation. A team of doctors, specially-trained nurses, foot care specialists and lab technologists are experienced in all areas of wound management. Even patients with long standing wounds may heal in a few months.
