Each year, the Arizona Burn Center treats more than 5,000 children and adults and boasts a survival rate of more than 97 percent.
As Arizona’s only nationally verified burn center, Maricopa Integrated Health System’s comprehensive Arizona Burn Center is the leading provider of emergency services to adult and pediatric burn patients from across the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.
Flames, boiling water, chemical spills, electrocution – any of these can cause burns or pulmonary damage. Fortunately, MIHS’s Arizona Burn Center provides a comprehensive set of medical and ancillary specialty care services for adult and pediatric burn patients. That’s why MIHS’s Arizona Burn Center, which celebrated 50 years of service in 2014, is one of the busiest burn centers in the United States, seeing over 5,000 patients annually, and boasts a survival rate of more than 97 percent. It is nationally recognized for its top-ranked burn care and research.
The Arizona Burn Center is the epicenter of the state of Arizona Burn Disaster Network. Established in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the network connects 11 hospitals to the burn center through telemedicine. MIHS’s Arizona Burn Center has 45 beds, state of the art equipment and physicians and nurses who are all board certified in emergency burn services. Through partnering with the Burn Disaster Network, there are now 110 more burn beds available statewide, providing burn patients outside of Phoenix top-notch care through the Arizona Burn Center’s physicians and nurses.
