A burn injury is extremely traumatic and painful. We provide advanced, specialized treatment for burn injuries at our Burn Care Centers of Excellence. Our goal is to minimize scarring and injury for our patients and prevent infection.
Burn Care Centers of Excellence
Two HHC facilities, Jacobi Medical Center and Harlem Hospital Center, have earned Burn Center status from the New York State Department of Health. The medical staff and technology at these hospitals have extensive experience and are especially well-equipped to treat the most serious burn cases.
Harlem Hospital operates one of the few burn units in New York City that has a specialty in plastic and reconstructive surgery to reduce the scarring that affects African-American patients.
Jacobi Hospital is known for its outstanding clinical research and teaching programs and as a pioneer in employing early surgical intervention to preserve skin and minimize infection and injury.
